The Equity and Inclusion Council (EIC) is committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive environment that is dedicated to the success of all members of the KCKCC community, which reflects the broad diversity of experiences and perspectives.

Through culturally competent behaviors, attitudes, instruction, and policies, KCKCC promotes a diverse educational experience, fosters inclusivity to ensure student, faculty, and staff success, and contributes to the vitality of the institution and the surrounding communities. 

The council is a college-wide, strategic initiative administered by the Center for Equity, Inclusion and Multicultural Engagement, that includes representatives from all stakeholder groups and locations.
