Our Vision for Social Justice - We are seeking people who recognize
the critical role community colleges play in social justice, who
have ability in this space, enthusiasm for this work, ideas and
vision to improve our approaches, and a commitment to achieving
equitable academic success for the 50,000+ students attending our
five beautiful colleges and centers. Our social justice work calls
for employees who have a sense of social responsibility, interest
in our community and world in which we live.
The intention of social justice work is to strengthen humanity by
understanding that every person deserves the benefits of fully
participating in our society and institutions.
Academic researchers have illustrated that crucial social justice
principles are a compilation of equality, equity, diversity,
inclusion, engagement, environmental sustainability and human
rights. These complex principles are challenging to operationalize
in higher education; yet, we are steadfast in our diligence to
forge ahead to advance this vital mission.
Community colleges are uniquely positioned to lead higher education
in the work of social justice. Many of our students come from
historically underserved and underrepresented backgrounds; students
of color, students with recent immigrant histories, students from
cycles of low income if not poverty, students from indigenous
communities, and students from first-generation families.
The idea of promoting social mobility through education is
unconditionally and uncompromisingly embraced by community
colleges. This is an exciting role, and it comes with a heavy
responsibility. Simply put, we need to create environments where
our students achieve greater academic success, so much so that we
close our persistent equity/opportunity gaps.
If you are committed to social and racial justice and if you are
interested in joining a community dedicated to solving these
inequities through education, please apply.
