Community engagement means to have community involvement from beginning to the end,
which fuels the passion that drives any movement. Seeing yourself in the movement
is how we can begin to lift our cause higher. The beauty in community engagement is
finding individuals who share the same experiences as us and finding space to see
ourselves in one another, rising together in unity. It all starts with beginning an
inner conversation with yourself, and expanding to dialogue with your community.
In the spring of 2019 a request from several members of the All College Council and
several other areas of the college suggested the college work to ensure the college
was operating at the highest level of DEI. One of the council’s initial activities
was to launch the campus climate survey. The goal of the campus climate survey was
to collect perspectives, data, and insights of the entire college community.
