What is Diversity?

We recognize that diversity is a catch-all phrase that cannot capture the full extent of dynamic differences in people and the determinate. SFCC honors continuums of culture, language, age, social class, body type, color, accents, heights, abilities, disabilities, (a) genders, gender expressions or creativity, gender identities, (a) sexual orientations, medical status, political affiliations, religions, spiritual beliefs, creeds, veteran status, language, mental health, immigration status, national origins, health status, and the indeterminate. SFCC supports and encourages diversity in a safe, positive and nurturing environment.  This institution values going beyond simple tolerance and champions an environment of inclusiveness and equity that both embraces and celebrates the rich dimensions of humanity.
