Diversity Committee for Communities of Interests (DCCOI)

VISION STATEMENT

To promote and sustain a cohesive and inclusive environment among the university and local community, that truly values and embraces diversity, groups, cultures, differences, and perspectives within the framework of the Academic environment.

MISSION STATEMENT

The Diversity Committee for Communities of Interests (DCCOI) will be an integral part of the Office for Diversity and Inclusion and will take a leadership role in providing programs, services, and resources that support the office’s and university’s mission. Serving as a catalyst, DCCOI will develop policies, practices, and programs that represent and enhance the Universitys diverse student populations. In collaboration with other university offices and community entities, the DCCOI will seek to improve the overall educational, social, and cultural experiences of UNCP’s underrepresented groups. The ultimate purpose of the committee will be to ensure that students are informed and encouraged to take advantage of the university’s and community’s academic, cultural, social, and economic resources, thus providing an atmosphere of life long learning.
