CCA is a community that is committed to our students through the core foundations of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).
At CCA, we are intentional in embracing differences in people, perspectives, backgrounds, identities & abilities. We strive to implement responsive practices in recognition of the differing circumstances, resources, and opportunities experienced by our unique student population. We encourage our members to be active, respectful, and mindful of DEI in all aspects of the college community.
We are inspired to foster and engage in an inclusive and global world reflecting the rich diversity of Aurora, Colorado. We seek to include all in a thoughtful and meaningful way.
Diversity is the celebration, acknowledgement, and inclusion of variations in cultures, identities and lived experiences of individuals at our college which contributes to learning and human connection.
Equity is designing systems and processes that provide access and opportunities to meet each individual’s needs and goals; discovering and acknowledging barriers and adapting support.
Inclusion is an intentional environment where authentic experiences, opinions, and identities are considered, respected, and valued.
