Diversity Mission Statement

The HCC embraces the inherent value of diversity and endeavors to promote a safe environment that respects and upholds the dignity and civil rights of all persons. We acknowledge the injustice and profound impact of discrimination and marginalization of individuals and groups. We strive to promote students’ ongoing academic, personal, and multicultural growth. We welcome dialogue of varying perspectives as we continue to expand our self-awareness and understanding of how diversity influences concepts of a holistic health and wellness practice.
