Diversity & Inclusiveness
Lloyd A. Holmes
Chief Diversity Officer
MCC is an academic community made up of individuals who reflect differences in nationality, culture, ethnicity, religion, color, race, skill, physical ability, and sexual orientation.
As a community of global learners, we are proud to affirm and celebrate the rich diversity that exists among us. We believe acknowledging and celebrating our diversity is essential to maintaining academic freedom and inquiry. We maintain that valuing differences can teach us more about ourselves as human beings and provide us with creative energy that comes when we learn from each other.
Valuing diversity requires that we all be willing to respect and attempt to understand the full range of thought and feeling of others’ views. To achieve this dialogue, we strive to maintain open and unprejudiced minds; we suspend our final judgment, and seek to enter into others’ views and knowledge. The MCC community supports learning and activities that enhance our knowledge, awareness, and appreciation of diversity.
