INCLUSIVITY IN THE Iclca
The International College Learning Center Association (ICLCA) represents a diverse body of educators who are dedicated to promoting excellence among learning center personnel. To that end, it is imperative to recognize and celebrate that our members are as diverse as the students we are called to serve.
ICLCA unequivocally stands proudly and firmly in support of our diverse membership and those we serve, and we are not tolerant of hatred or discrimination as it relates to gender identity or expression, sexuality, ethnicity, race, religion, ability, nationality, or any element of a person’s identity. We recognize and celebrate the contributions of our members from historically disenfranchised and underrepresented groups.
Why we believe this is important:
We see you, hear you, value you, and welcome you!
The students we are called to serve represent diverse backgrounds and identities. The following actions are ICLCA’s best practices that can be implemented by learning center professionals to embody a commitment to inclusivity directly in their roles and operations:
#1. Prepare your staff to support the goal of learning centers as agents of equity
#2. Evaluate the representation and reach of your programs
#3. Make your support publicly known
