Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Created in 2020, the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is charged with carrying out President and CEO Bryan Albrecht’s commitment on the college’s behalf "to join the effort to heal our community through justice, and respect the dignity that all people deserve" to further the interests of the diverse community Gateway serves and to further the Vision 2024ward strategic plan to create an equitable and inclusive campus. Below, you’ll find an overview of the Office’s work and key definitions.

Equity Report and Strategic Plan

Two Gateway documents provide detail and background to the college’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. The first is the Local Equity report, a collaborative publication released in June 2020. The report analyzes equity gaps that exist for program students and offers interventions that emphasize DEI. The second report, the 2022-24 DEI Strategic Plan, offers insight into Gateway’s overall plan and goals for DEI at the college.

Equal Opportunity and Civil Rights

The Office of Equal Opportunity and Civil Rights oversees Civil Rights/Equal Opportunity and Title IX regulations, among others, helping to ensure Gateway’s commitment both to the letter and spirit of the law, as well as to maintaining the highest ethical standards.
