The Diversity Council at the College of Lake County provides direction to evaluate and promote institutional priorities related to diversity and inclusion in the college community.

This council will work to ensure that the CLC community practices institutional integrity in all aspects of diversity in our community, both on campus and off.

Diversity and Multicultural Infusion Project (DMEIP) – For the past several years, DMEIP has brought in a speaker from outside CLC to speak on topics relating to diversity usually in September. For the remaining months (October, November, February, March, April), Co-Chairs have prepared trainings to help us learn about diversity issues that may affect our work environment or the educational experience of our students.
Diversity Luncheons - the Diversity Commission Co-Chairs began to invite a small group of individuals to lunch once a month to discuss issues related to diversity. In an ideal situation, we will have 2 members from each employee group present (2 administrators, 2 classified, 2 specialists, 2 part-time faculty, 2 faculty) plus 2 students and the co-chairs of the Diversity Commission. If you get an invitation, we hope that you can come. If you can’t, please let us know as quickly as possible so we can invite someone else. I will also ask you to suggest someone for us. We hope that this becomes an informal way to get to know one another while discussing issues that are before the Diversity Commission as well as providing an opportunity for you to bring concerns to the commission.
