Inclusion is involvement and empowerment, where the inherent worth and dignity of all people are recognized. We strive to promote and sustain a sense of belonging. Respect for the talents, beliefs, backgrounds, and ways of living are primary values and practices of our institution.
Regardless of a student’s socioeconomic status, creed, ability, marital status, race, ethnicity, gender identity, religion, political affiliation or sexual orientation, at some point in a student’s academic career they might need assistance outside of the normal realm of what is perceived to be in student services.
Sometimes, students need a little extra help to achieve success in college.
That’s where TCC’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion comes in. TCC’s three Retention Specialists –Thesha Zeigler, Joy Betz, and Sarah Carr – offer support and educational opportunities designed to increase the academic success, retention, graduation and transfer of students who may have barriers and challenges to overcome in order to realize their goals.
