Diversity at Bronx Community College

"Bronx Community College defines diversity in its broadest context to include all that makes us unique: race, color, gender, religion, national origin, age, disability status, culture, sexual orientation, gender identity, parental status, educational background, socioeconomic status, intellectual perspective, organizational level, and more. By doing so, we are able to harvest the full performance advantages our diversity offers.  Inclusion is the means by which we harvest this talent. It is the deliberate effort to leverage diversity and empower all voices to contribute to the college vision and mission." President Carole M. Berotte Joseph

Campus Diversity Committee

In January 2013, a ten-member campus Diversity Committee was created to serve as an advisory group to the Offices of the President, Academic Affairs and Affirmative Action, Compliance and Diversity. The committee assists in the preparation of the College's Diversity Action Plan to present diversity planning and assessment activities for faculty recruitment and retention. The committee's functions, as recommended by the CUNY Office of Recruitment and Diversity, is as follows:

  • Review and recommend strategies that address recruitment efforts to diversify underrepresented academic departments;
  • Review and recommend strategies that address the need for career development/counseling and mentorship opportunities for faculty;
  • Review and recommend strategies that address the need to show the college's good faith efforts of an inclusive environment.
