Olympic College Equity Statement

Olympic College Equity Statement

Equity in education is realized when we...

  • Prevent and remove barriers for groups of students with histories of exclusion, discrimination, and marginalization
  • Achieve equal educational outcomes for historically marginalized groups relative to their peers
  • Lead with racial equity to maximize student potential across all social identities, including race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, sexual identity, gender identity, ability, age, national origin, citizenship, and religion
  • Maintain a culture of belonging that advances racial, social and economic justice in service to our diverse communities

Welcome to the office of diversity, equity, inclusion & Belonging

Join us in celebrating the rich tapestry of diversity and belonging throughout the year! Here we are at Olympic College, where diversity is celebrated, equity is championed, and inclusion is our foundation. Together, we create a space where every voice is heard, valued, and embraced. From honoring Dr. King's legacy to recognizing Black History Month, from elevating women’s voices to immersing ourselves in various cultures and customs, each event is a chance to embrace and appreciate the unique contributions and experiences of every individual. Explore, engage, and join us on this journey of fostering a sense of belonging for all. Let's learn, grow, and celebrate our shared journey together.
