Join the Effort to Promote Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at RCBC!

Hands coming to work togetherOur President’s Advisory Council on Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (PACDEI) is a group of primarily volunteer faculty, staff and students that work together to promote diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) on campus through communication, advocacy, research and education. 

The council advises the president regarding DEI issues and serves the college's diverse populations by recommending and  coordinating institutional procedures that help achieve the objectives outlined in the current strategic plan. We welcome community involvement at all levels.

Joining this group and these essential conversations is easy! Email to get in touch with RCBC's DEI Coordinator who will help tailor your involvement to meet your needs. We welcome everyone in the RCBC community to become change agents here on campus.
