Inclusion and Diversity at Cowley College

We are Cowley...

Cowley Inclusion and Diversity Initiative

Cowley College’s Inclusion and Diversity Initiative promotes inclusion and diversity awareness and action. We provide a platform to identify resources, increase knowledge, and launch projects to empower the College and wider communities.

Cowley College defines diversity as an opportunity to see, experience, and engage in the larger variety that makes up our community. By variety we mean there are various characteristics, roles, and supports that provide us with a sense of inclusion.

Annual Goals: (2020-2021)

  1. Complete one student-directed Inclusion and Diversity initiative.
  2. Plan and deliver at least four ID spotlights via the Inclusion and Diversity website.
  3. Prepare and execute a data gathering activity regarding future Inclusion and Diversity trainings during spring in-service.
