KCAD will implement an active commitment to diversity and inclusion within the entire KCAD community.
- Objective 1: Recruit and retain a diverse student body.
- Objective 2: Recruit and retain diverse faculty and staff.
- Objective 3: Enhance programs and curriculum to engage discourse and learning around the topics of diversity and inclusion.
Through this Strategic Priority KCAD seeks to recruit, enroll, and support a broader pool of diverse students. This includes expansion of our early engagement pipeline for diversity through a strengthening of our K-12 connectivity in the city and the state to include more Dual-enrollment opportunities, more faculty outreach, and more continuing education for youth and K-12 teachers. KCAD seeks to address economic barriers for potential students.
In addition, KCAD seeks to enhance and grow global opportunities for students and encourage international students through partnerships with overseas institutions and enhanced support for international students on campus.
KCAD seeks to develop diversity and inclusion awareness on campus through curriculum, programs, study abroad opportunities, awareness programming, and student activities.
