Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Supporting diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) are a priority and has led to the development of a professional learning community (PLC) devoted to DEI at Missoula College (MC). The mission of the MC DEI-PLC is to increase awareness of diversity, equity, and inclusion at Missoula College. We aim to recognize existing DEI efforts, identify gaps through ongoing collaboration with MC students, faculty and staff; and we intend to provide recommendations for improvement with a specific focus on the comprehensive two-year college mission. We are committed to improving access to equitable education, supporting students’ academic achievement, and fostering an inclusive workplace for students, faculty, and staff.
