Office of Diversity and Inclusion
What makes CCGA exceptional makes us different! The College of Coastal Georgia represents many nationalities and cultures that enhance experiences and our celebration of diversity. The Office of Diversity and Inclusion helps students gain cultural competencies needed for today’s graduates through diversity initiatives.
The Office of Diversity and Inclusion’s mission is to: offer programs that foster the understanding of and respect for cultural differences and to ensure that campus community supports cultural and academic initiatives through multicultural education, advocacy, and intercultural understanding. Through these initiatives, an inclusive campus environment will affirm a just community for students, faculty, and staff – assisting the campus community members to achieve their greatest potential.
In order to fulfill this mission, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion has two overarching goals: 1) to provide support and assistance to underrepresented students in order to increase their retention, persistence and graduation from College; and, 2) provide value-added education by promoting cross-cultural understanding through specific programs that encourage respect and appreciation among and between students, faculty, and staff.
