Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

We are a college community enriched by the diversity of our students, staff and community members. Each individual and group has the potential to contribute in our learning environment. Each has dignity. To diminish the dignity of one is to diminish the dignity of us all.

A Message from our President

Chemeketa Community College is a rich community that values diversity of perspectives, identities, cultures, experiences and backgrounds. We believe such diversity is essential for hardy dialogue and learning. It is our hope that members of the college and broader community will use this website as a tool to deepen their own education, as well as learn how Chemeketa realizes its commitment to diversity.

Together, we all contribute to the texture and experience that we call Chemeketa!
