Our Presence in the Community
The Access/Equity/Diversity Office has a history of collaborating with other departments and organizations at SCC to offer a diverse array of activities and events to SCC staff and students.
Some of our current collaborations include:
SCC Armchair Traveler Program:
In collaboration with the Global Education team, the office has introduced staff and students to the online database “CultureGrams,” which offers reports for 190 countries and territories. Each report includes 25 categories such as land and climate, history, personal appearance, greetings, gestures, family, diet, holidays, economy, education, health, and events and trends. Staff receives .5 hour diversity credit for reviewing a trio of select countries each month.
SCC Speakers Workshops:
The Access/Equity/Diversity Office has also collaborated with the Global Education Initiative and other departments throughout the institution, and supported diversity credit for speakers and programs presented to SCC staff.Recent programs and speakers include Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Kathryn Bolkovac, storyteller, Antonio Rocha, Native American activists, Mercy Thunder Hawk and Marcy Gilbert; activities at the Sheldon Art Museum and Homestead National Monument of America in Beatrice; the annual Martin Luther King Jr. breakfast; and the Hubbard Lecture Series: First People of the Plains Lecture.
