Office of Institutional Diversity

The Mission and Vision

We at Massasoit pride ourselves in our tradition of excellence and in our historic mission of accepting all who desire to learn. We are dedicated to creating a supportive environment where every member of the community can attain educational and personal goals. We encourage all to take responsibility for their learning, to discover their potential, and to achieve their ambitions.

Recognizing that our diversity is an important part of our strength, Massasoit created the Office For Institutional Diversity to respond to the needs of our community and ensure that everyone at Massasoit respects the rights and affirms the dignity of all. We strive to construct a safe, trustful environment where together, we can engage in open dialogue.

As we define inclusive excellence, we realize that it is one distinctive quality that characterizes great institutions. The Office of Institutional Diversity is committed to the idea of respect for human diversity in our learning and working environment. To recognize and appreciate the value of diversity and cross-cultural understanding, the office has the following diversity goals:
  • Develop programs to stimulate awareness and promote acceptance of differences on campus and within the community.
  • Recommend and encourage the integration of multicultural contributions in the curriculum and course offerings.
  • Monitor and assist in the hiring, recruitment and retention of faculty and staff.
  • Conduct assessment of current diversity practices.
  • Seek to provide conflict resolution for incidences of intolerance.
  • Provide outstanding and culturally competent resources and services to Massasoit and the community.
  • Prepare all students to thrive in our diverse, global environment.
