Commitment to Equity and Inclusion

The administration of Beaufort County Community College, the chairman of the Board of Trustees, Rev. Dr. Robert Cayton, and I wish to publicly reiterate the College’s continuing commitment to equity and inclusion, which is a foundational element of our institutional mission. As an open-enrollment, public, community college, Beaufort works each day to provide educational opportunities designed to enhance economic and social mobility for the residents of our diverse service region. Our faculty and staff will continue to teach content and engage students in a manner that emphasizes the basic rights and responsibilities of citizenship in a complex, pluralistic society.

At Beaufort, we like to say “You Belong Here!” And by “You,” we mean everyone, regardless of race, gender, creed, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic status. This is our promise to our students, now and in perpetuity.
