A Message from the Executive Director

Clover Park Technical College (CPTC) is moving to cultivate an inclusive culture and campus climate by valuing diversity, sustaining an environment of belonging, promoting equitable opportunities for all, and preparing our students for the increasingly diverse workforce that awaits them. As an institution, we want to be valuable to diverse communities; provide students, faculty and staff the appropriate support, training, and resources essential to move in excellence; and strategically advocate for increases in certificate- and degree-completion. 

We recognize that a commitment to EDI cannot rest on its ideals alone; the commitment requires continuous reflection, ongoing assessment of campus climate, and a genuine sense of urgency towards addressing the needs and gaps faced by the most vulnerable members of our community. To integrate EDI throughout our college, we must be open to transformative change. By implementing accountability, updating policies and procedures through an equitable lens, providing incentives, and enhancing infrastructure and resources, we can put the slow-moving gears into motion. 

We have challenging tasks ahead of us, and it will be a heavy lift. I am confident that CPTC is ready. It is an honor to serve as Clover Park Technical College’s first Chief Diversity Officer, a compassionate change agent courageously leading our College’s EDI efforts. I appreciate President Loveday for her vision and ongoing support in moving EDI initiatives and interventions forward. We are in this together, lean in.
