Diversity & Equity Affairs



The Diversity and Equity Affairs Division serves Middlesex Community College as a catalyst and resource to infuse the values of diversity and equity into all aspects of the College. A college-wide commitment to inclusive excellence and to the educational benefits of diversity require a culture where diversity and equity are woven into the College's teaching, learning and operations, and where all the College's communities are active partners in this work with shared responsibility for its success. A combination of shared vision and programs foster this work.

The Diversity & Equity Affairs Division partners on multiple initiatives and programs at the College:

  • Affirmative Action Office
  • Diversity Committee
  • National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI)
  • Massachusetts Community Colleges NCBI Consortium
  • Merrimack Valley Commonwealth Compact, a Commonwealth Compact regional collaborative
  • Diversity Works Speaker Series
  • Massachusetts Community Colleges Diversity & Inclusion Summit
  • Additional diversity and equity resources including conferences
