Diversity Vision Statement


The Foothill-De Anza Community College District is committed to becoming a model District for the 21st century. We are building upon our rich history of innovation and student success to become a truly democratic, culturally pluralistic organization. All members of our District community understand and respect that our cultural diversity is one of our greatest strengths. The District welcomes and unites people of all ethnicities, genders, sexual orientation, socio-economic classes, religions, abilities and ages and empowers them as individual and as groups.

We believe that culturally diverse teams yield more creative, synergistic and effective outcomes. We are increasingly willing to accept and address the conflict that arises as a normal part of existence in a pluralistic environment in order to work towards acknowledging, addressing and confronting our differences positively. We recognize that we are part of a global community and that this informs our responsibility to our students. We recognize that the development and maintenance of a multicultural district is a journey not a final destination so we are prepared to learn and grow as issues emerge.

Finally we recognize that the attainment of this vision is not only possible, but critical to our viability, to meeting our potential as a District and most importantly, to the success of our students.
