Chemeketa’s Diversity Advisory Council

The Diversity Advisory Council promotes implementation of policies and practices designed to achieve and sustain an environment of inclusiveness that empowers all students and employees to realize their highest potential without fear. We do this by –

  • Identifying institutional issues and trends that impact the equity and inclusivity of our institution

  • Providing consultation for college leadership and other groups
  • Honoring accomplishments and best practices
