The DEI resource page is community-supported. MVCC community members are warmly invited to send to tmarshall@mvcc.edu their favorite quotes, poems, excerpts, passages from books, articles, and songs that highlight DEI issues. Submissions can also be community stories that focus on understanding others, human empathy, and overcoming barriers and achieving success. The objective of this website is to broaden our understanding of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion while contributing to our collective community voice. This website seeks to support the college’s mission to meet the diverse needs of our students. If all members of the MVCC community keep increasing and enhancing our cultural competence and cultural dexterity, then we will be in a much better position to meet those needs. Please add your voice. Your participation, contributions, and engagement are greatly appreciated.
