What are the benefits of diversity? 
Individual differences are the building blocks for relationships. When the strengths of diverse relationships are utilized to their fullest capacity, we as individuals gain an edge in our working and personal relationships with one another.
A diverse student population is also an important educational resource that enhances the educational experiences which in turn enhances the environment for learning. Socializing with individuals who are different contributes to the academic development, satisfaction with the college education, level of cultural awareness and commitment to promoting diverse understandings.
 
What is AACC doing to promote diversity? 
AACC continues to create and foster an inclusive college campus and a spirit of community. The Diversity Committee is responsible for managing the College’s comprehensive Diversity Plan and provides student groups with monetary incentives to support diversity events and activities.
The Diversity Committee membership represents multiple areas of the college including students, faculty and staff whose specialties range from direct support to administrative responsibilities.

What is AACC’s Diversity Plan? 
The Diversity Plan informs and directs our diversity efforts. In order to build on the successes,
The Diversity Committee develops a plan that provides a structure in which to create and sustain an environment that allows people of different backgrounds, economic levels, values, and beliefs to flourish and contribute, both in the classroom and in the workplace.
