Equity and Inclusion

TBCC’s Equity and Inclusion Committee was formed in 2017 to build the cultural competence of staff, faculty, and students and to lead the college in becoming a more equitable environment. The committee’s mission is to build an infrastructure that supports diversity and promotes inclusion in alignment with the TBCC mission and strategic plan.
