Mohave Community College is committed to maintaining an environment of respect, support and acceptance; one that recognizes the inherent worth and dignity of every person. We are committed to building a social and educational environment free of harassment, prejudice, and injustice and one that supports necessary shifts in societal thinking that infringes on the rights of others. A rich diversity of people and the many points of view they bring to campus serve to enhance the quality of the educational experience at Mohave Community College. As such, and in light of current events surrounding the death of George Floyd, we stand with and support all those who are peacefully working toward social change. 

Dear Members of the MCC Community,

As students enter our campus and work toward completing a degree, we are committed to building a social and educational environment free of harassment, prejudice, and injustice, while encouraging vigorous debate and reasoned disagreement of opinion. This allows for civil discourse and engaged pluralism, which should be engrained in the fabric of a public institution of higher education. We want our students to be good citizens and active bystanders in this world and have the knowledge and abilities to engage others from different cultures, different backgrounds, and different beliefs. We believe that a rich diversity of people and the many points of view they bring to campus serve to enhance the quality of the educational experience at Mohave Community College.

We now translate that commitment to action.  The new MCC strategic plan has identified key objectives and action items designed to increase our efforts in providing the support for various underrepresented groups, providing an environment where their voice is heard, and implementing the educational efforts to all those associated with MCC so we provide the support deserving of all students.  We encourage our students to take an active stance and assist us in creating the outlets so needed, such as clubs and organization designed to nurture, heal, and support. 

Each campus has a Dean of Student and Community Engagement and each can be contacted to provide the assistance needed.  They will be instrumental in implementing all new efforts and can be an assistance to an individual or group of students eager to learn how they can promote social change.  They will also serve as a conduit to community leaders who can help promote action and find solutions.  If you are a student or employee, please reach out to your designated Dean and ask how you can help, how they can help, and how all can be involved in guiding the College down a path of true openness, support, and offering an environment that promotes and supports positive, engaged social change.
