Diversity and Inclusive Excellence

UCC’s Commitment to Diversity and Inclusive Excellence

Land Acknowledgement
Umpqua Community College acknowledges and honors the Cow Creek Band of the Umpqua Tribe of Indians and the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, on whose traditional lands the college is now located. We recognize and pay tribute to these homelands, to the legacy that these tribes have endured in this region, and to the tribal members who still reside in and contribute to the local community. We encourage all to consider our collective responsibility to and solidarity with Native, Indigenous, and First Nations people, and their sovereignty, cultural heritage, and lives.

UCC is looking for people with diverse ideas, backgrounds and experiences to help us achieve our commitment to inclusive excellence. We encourage you to apply so you can share with us your excitement for helping foster community partnerships that enhance diversity, inclusion, and equity as well as your passion for student success.

Diversity in the academic environment fosters cultural awareness, mutual understanding, respect, and models UCC’s values and mission to our students, employees and visitors. UCC remains committed to building a community of equitable opportunity, fostering a climate of acceptance that is inclusive of individuals from a wide variety of backgrounds.
