DIVERSITY & EQUITY STATEMENT

“Preparing educators to be knowledgeable, ethical, caring decision makers, in a diverse and changing world.”    

Our mission statement inspires, defines and directs every action within our college – from hiring faculty to creating assignments.    

Each year, we produce a faculty-led documentary and this year’s is about BESITOS, an incredibly successful program created for Latino students in southwest Kansas. We’ve also addressed refugees and how schools prepare for and welcome newcomer students. Other topics we’ve explored include Buffalo Soldiers, first-generation college students, the Underground Railroad, social justice in education and military life. All of our documentaries are free and available online and many have accompanying lesson plans.     

In addition, we hold an annual Indigenous People’s Day event led by Native American faculty. And, our college adopted the Call Me MISTER program to attract more men of color to the teaching profession.
