A Message From Lorain County Community College President Dr. Roy Church

Dr. Roy A. ChurchToni Morrison once said, “The peace I am thinking of is the dance of an open mind when it engages another equally open one.”  The launching of the Diversity Task Force web site is a momentous occasion and is reflective of our growth and development at Lorain County Community College.

The Diversity Task Force began their work five years ago as a small pilot program which set out to monitor and evaluate how our college demonstrates its commitment to fairness, inclusion and equality.  LCCC has committed the resources and leadership that are necessary for the Diversity Task Force to meet its goal of creating a diverse and inclusive educational environment.  To date, the Diversity Task Force has created an infrastructure of subcommittees charged with focusing on the salient issues of race, ethnicity, gender, age, class and sexual orientation and how they can help achieve our Vision 2015 goals.

The Diversity Task Force has also collaborated with the internationally acclaimed National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI) and held orientation and training opportunities to our campus including train the trainer sessions. Because of this collaboration LCCC now has twenty-three certified trainers on our campus to deliver the Coalition Building and Prejudice Reduction Workshop Model.  Our trainers are comprised of fulltime and part time faculty, administrators, staff, and students. 

The achievements of the Diversity Task Force are testimony to how we are striving to open the minds that will eventually achieve the peace sought by all of us.
