Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
YVC’s 2021-2025 Strategic Plan integrates DEI efforts within YVC’s five strategic directions by establishing work groups charged with meeting the deliverables of House Bills 5194 and 5227 as well as YVC DEI efforts. Work groups include administrators, faculty, classified staff, and students. Work group representatives, Strategic Direction Co-Leads, and the YVC Administration meet quarterly to review progress on strategic initiatives and collaborate for improvements.
