Cedar Crest Diversity Statement
Founded under the mission to expand women’s access to higher-education, Cedar Crest College values difference in a diverse, inclusive, and equitable learning environment. The College is committed to educational excellence, leadership, and civic engagement in a pluralistic society. We thus embrace an inclusive community that brings together students, faculty, and staff of different racial and multi-racial, ethnic and multi-ethnic, gender and sexually diverse, economic, religious, and national identities and ages, including students of color, first-generation college students, international students, students of varying ability/disability, and other students underrepresented in higher education.
The Center for Diversity and Inclusion (CDI) supports Cedar Crest College’s diversity statement through its educational programing and services. The CDI will provide resources that foster awareness as well as empower students with knowledge, tools and experiences that promote global citizenship and a more inclusive campus. Finally CDI will advocate for our diverse student population.
Our work is facilitated through:
- Coordination of a comprehensive programming calendar.
- Development and implementation of a wide range of diverse and social justice education and training opportunities on topics including but not limited to gender, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation and socioeconomic class.
- Support our diverse student organizations and house the Student Diversity Council.
- Coordination of the inclusion grants.
