The Diversity Action Plan (DAP) reflects our institution’s commitment to inclusive excellence. Under the leadership of President Dr. Steve Dorman, the importance of diversity and inclusion efforts at Georgia College have been strategically outlined in the DAP. Modeled organizationally after the California State University, Chico’s diversity plan, Georgia College’s DAP was divided into four goal areas: Student Access and Success, Curriculum, Creative Learning and Scholarship, Campus Climate and Campus Vitality and Viability. The DAP addresses four goals: student diversity access and success; curriculum, creative learning and scholarship; faculty and staff recruitment and retention success; and campus climate.

Student Diversity Access and Success
Georgia College is interested in increasing the diversity of the student population by attracting underrepresented students to campus. The DAP specifically targets enrollment, retention and graduation strategies that will assist Georgia College in attracting and retaining underrepresented populations as well as assisting in degree completion.
Curriculum, Creative Learning and Scholarship
The DAP seeks strategies that focus on the learning experiences of Georgia College students that promote diversity competence in curricular activities. Other goals include faculty, staff, student scholarship, professional development and research on diversity and inclusion.
Faculty and Staff Recruitment and Retention Success
The DAP seeks to develop strategies to increase diversity of faculty, professional staff and administration at all levels of Georgia College. These efforts will include opportunities for developing a system of accountability in hiring, promotion and professional development opportunities.
DAP develops ways to assist Georgia in developing opportunities of inclusion through policies, processes, programs, co-curricular activities and activities that may advance and sustain an inclusive campus environment.
