Diversity Center

 

Welcome to Clark College's Diversity Center

The Diversity Center is a great place to visit between classes. Everyone is welcome to come in and hang out, study, and meet people. The center offers educational resources that engages the faculty, staff and students through conversations, self-reflection, and support of creating a safe and respectful place for everyone. It is a place where students, faculty and staff can connect with their communities and learn about others as well. It is essential to advocate for an inclusive community to ensure the enrichment of everyone’s experience at the college and in our community.

The Diversity Center is equipped with a resource library, filled with books, videos, dvds, and artwork, that is open to all. Also, there are many informational resources on services provided at the college and with community partners. Come in and learn about others, engage in thoughtful conversations about diversity, inclusion, power, privilege, inequity, social equity and social justice, and find your community.

The Diversity Center hosts regular conversations, film screenings, workshops, student luncheon, and events that celebrates diversity and social equity.

Our department also leads many of the diversity and social equity initiatives at the college.
