The EPCC Diversity Program will conduct a survey through May 25.
The survey is 46 multiple choice questions that focus on feedback to help structure diversity programs to fit students needs.
“The Climate of Diversity survey has become a valuable tool for measuring and improving the impact of these [diversity] programs,” Jose Jaime, assistant director of Diversity programs, said.
“This is the fourth year the survey will be available and it provides a venue for feedback from employees and students at El Paso Community College.”
Jaime said the Diversity Program’s mission at El Paso Community College is to provide educational opportunities and support services that prepare individuals to improve their personal quality of life and to contribute to their economically and culturally diverse community.
“The Diversity Programs Office at EPCC strives to foster and promote cultural awareness and respect not only among employees, but among our students and the surrounding El Paso community,” he said.
“Guided by a Diversity Council comprised of district and community representatives, this department utilizes a multi-faceted approach to promote diversity, equity and inclusion.”
The survey is open to both students and faculty to complete.
“As our world has changed and become a global community, diversity and inclusion have also become critical components of providing a high quality education,” Jaime said.
“Addressing these topics nurtures personal growth by challenging stereotypes and by broadening our horizons when we understand other cultures and points of view.”
Those interested in participating in the survey can find it on the program’s Facebook page or on the EPCC webpage.
