Together We Commit
We don’t just say it. We live it.
Oakland Community College believes every individual deserves the chance to do their best, to be respected, and to feel safe and supported. Each of us, in ways big and small, has an opportunity to make a difference—to learn and to grow as part of our personal journey.
This is why we are proud to support this diversity, equity, inclusion and justice (DEIJ) initiative built on the foundation of an educational and inspirational pledge. Together, we are asking members of our community to commit to making OCC a more equitable, diverse and inclusive community—and, indeed champion DEIJ forward as global citizens of the world.
|To listen intently, with compassion, to understand others.||
||To value myself, others and the contributions we all make, our differences and our rights to a fair society, and the integrity we show one another through our words and deeds.|
||To inspire others by working together and by the examples we set.||
||To empower a culture of caring, of speaking out when something is not right, a culture where all have the opportunity to be their best.|
