Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity within the Tallahassee Community College involves creating an environment that demonstrates civility, equity and mutual respect of each person. We are each collectively responsible for providing an organizational climate where students and employees feel that they are welcome and an integral part of our community and each of our campuses. Our success depends upon us learning from each other and working together to achieve the vision and mission of this institution.

Tallahassee Community College is committed to fostering an educational philosophy that values the input and inclusion of all individuals and cultural groups within our institution and the communities we serve. Valuing different perspectives allows us to affirm as one entity the goals we have in common, and helps us fulfill our mission of preparing students, opening pathways, serving communities and creating opportunities.

Our Hope

TCC hopes by embracing inclusiveness, we will be able to face the personal, educational and communal barriers within society, and this will result in greater diversity, greater freedom and greater truth for each individual and our nation.

Our Commitment

TCC embraces diversity in our student body, workforce, curriculum and community. We know that diversity supports learning, excellence and preparation for global citizenry.

TCC is committed to achieving a community free from all forms of discrimination and harassment in its policies, practices and endeavors. Further, TCC is committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive community and to promoting greater awareness of and sensitivity to issues of diversity.
