We commit to engage our community in meaning-making and purposeful diverse and inclusive dialogue and action.
We At RVCC Commit to Being a Community that Honors...
We commit to empower our community by honoring the current DEI efforts that so many are already committed to; while developing new strategies and initiatives to further enhance our work and commitment to fostering an inclusive campus.
We commit to ensure that our community feels heard and included; providing equitable access to resources and offering transparency in our DEI efforts.
We commit to gaining continual awareness of our campus climate and culture, articulating our collective perspectives, identity, and institutional values; continuing to evaluate our experiences of power and privilege and adapting our approaches; reflecting back while looking ahead.
We commit to actively, intentionally, and consistently promote participation and co-design as a way to invoke a sense of belonging and a "sense of place" for every member of the RVCC community.

Established April 2022
THE PRESIDENT'S COMMISSION ON DIVERSITY, EQUITY, & INCLUSION
The establishment of the Presidents Commission on Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion at RVCC, co-chaired by the Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion & the Director of K-12 Education. The President’s Commission on DEI will directly be involved with analysis of the Campus Climate Survey as well as strategic recommendations and direction for future DEI efforts based on the information collected.
The President’s Commission on DEI will also serve as a bridging group; inclusive of key stakeholders who are already leading DEI efforts at RVCC with the purpose of centralizing efforts, sharing information transparently and across disciplines and assessing results of any implemented changes to determine future recommendations, adaptations or steps. The goal is to intentionally come together to develop a unified vision and collective DEI institutional identity. The Commission will work intuitively with the President to establish institutional DEI priorities and advise the President on DEI progress and emerging concerns or topics.
