Lived Experiences: Diverse Voices of Century College

Lived Experiences logo

The Century College Office of Diversity and Inclusion would like to introduce Lived Experiences: Diverse Voices of Century College.

The Lived Experiences: Diverse Voices of Century College project shares stories from Century College students, employees, and alumni about how race has factored into their life experiences. It will highlight ideas about how we can better understand our different cultures to increase awareness of diversity, equity, and inclusion and how Century College and the nation can bring about systemic social justice change.

Through the lived experiences and perspectives of our students, employees, and alumni, we can learn about how we are different, and yet the same, how we are impacted differently by the same historical and current events related to social justice and civil unrest, and how we can learn to co-exist in a society where racism and economic disparities remain part of the norm.

You’ll hear ways in which Century College is creating a welcoming community where everyone can feel safe to be themselves, to find representation in our faculty and staff, as well as our student body, and ways to improve. Century College strives to be a space of tolerance, where we can take on difficult subjects and discuss what’s happening in the world around us—and decide for ourselves and our community how to be better citizens and work for justice.

Lived Experiences: Diverse Voices of Century College is an initiative that falls under Goal 2 of our Century College Strategic Plan 2020-2025 to create a culture of inclusion, diversity, equity, and action.
