Nashville State Community College, in principle and practice, embraces diversity as a central effort in its mission to improve the quality of life for the communities it serves. There are no barriers to full participation in college activities on the basis of gender, race, creed, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, or class. In its many forms and expressions, diversity is essential to the mission of the College. Through commitment to diversity, the College seeks to promote the following ideals:
- Maintain a campus environment that attracts and retains a student body, faculty, and staff, representative of the cultural and racial diversity of communities it serves, and that prepares students to engage in this society.
- Provide students, faculty, and staff with courses and experiences that will enhance their sense of community with mutual trust and respect for people from all backgrounds, including international and American cultures.
- Offer co-curricular and out-of-classroom activities that provide opportunities for educationally purposeful interaction that enhance learning and personal development, including intellectual, cultural, social, ethical, physical, and emotional development.
