The following is a summary of some of the information gained from the survey.
In what ways, if any, do you think the College is currently supporting diversity?
Clover Park is a welcome College open to anyone who wants to learn!
By allowing all races, ages, gender & ethnicities have an opportunity for education
Lack of any kind of prejudice tells me that diversity is being supported, in that nothing is holding anyone back, other than one’s own actions
I don’t know if the college is supporting diversity, but the college is definitely diverse
What diversity activities/trainings would you like to see occur for CPTC faculty and staff?
Mandatory diversity training for all new employees; retroactive training for current employees
Activities that promote awareness of learning styles, disabilities, and cultural differences
Workshops to promote cultural competency and diversity implementation
Something that explains what diversity is and how to work with a diverse group of people
What diversity activities/training would you like to see occur for our CPTC students?
Events, presentations similar to those available during Black History Month
