This plan is the result of many listening sessions, feedback from faculty and staff, and 17 virtually held workshops with employees at ATC and ARCC during the Spring 2022 semester. The Building BRIDGES (Belongingness, Restoration, Inclusion, Diversity, Growth, Equity, Sustainability) Plan will be reviewed and revised at least every two years to ensure progress, relevancy, and to account for unforeseen changes that require adaptability and flexibility.
Our collective efforts are necessary for not only the future and sustainability of the college, but for our communities. With this plan we seek to build the necessary bridges that help current and future students, employees, and community members get from where they currently are professionally, academically, or socially to where they would like to be. This work is not going to be completed once then relegated to the history books – it is ongoing and evolving. It is imperative that all levels of the colleges understand how they play a role in our success with BRIDGES and the colleges’ missions and visions. We look forward to working with you to continue on a path that leads to a more equitable, just, and inclusive future.
