Diversity Advisory Council

Diversity is central to OC's core values.

The ​Diversitiy Advisory Council (DAC) advises the President and the Executive Leadership Team on enhancing diversity, multiculturalism and equal opportunity for all aspects of the college’s mission. As a campus-wide group, the DAC supports diversity initiatives across the college—everything from helping units understand the business case for diversity to providing practical resources for employees, students, and community members.

The DAC represents all of college’s mission areas and student, staff, and faculty groups. Working together, DAC members enhance communication and collaboration across OC’s campuses and departments.


The Diversity Advisory Council (DAC) meets monthly with an agenda to enhance diversity throughout Olympic College.

The DAC links individuals responsible for diversity-related efforts to further the college’s interest in supporting and promoting diversity and equal opportunity. Teamwork, furthering collaboration among schools and departments, and developing and prioritizing diversity initiatives are key charges of the Council.
