Welcome to the Office of Diversity and Inclusion webpage! Diversity is an embedded part of Massasoit Community College’s Mission, Values and Goals. We are rich in diversity — gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, ability, socioeconomic status, and more. Our mission is to ensure that we are committed to building and sustaining a diverse and inclusive environment for all -  one where everyone feels included and valued, one which inspires us to go further together for our workforce, our students, and for our communities. To accomplish these measures, we do the following: 

  • Develop and support programs and initiatives that celebrate diverse cultures, viewpoints, and identities;
  • Investigate complaints under the Policy on Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity & Diversity (PAA) to address and remedy instances of illegal discrimination; and
  • Facilitate and participate in difficult conversations about challenging subjects including implicit and explicit bias, equity, justice, and more.

If you ever have questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us in person or by phone or email. Thank you for doing your part to help make Massasoit a great place to learn and work!

“Let’s change the world by embracing our differences, being inclusive, learning from one another and utilizing our individual strengths.”
