Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Anti-Racism (IDEA)

We gratefully acknowledge Joyce McFarland, Nez Perce Education Department Education Manager, for her influence and inspiration. Thank you, Joyce, for challenging every teacher to “teach culturally” and supporting us in that process.

The LC CTL supports faculty develop classroom practices, service opportunities, and professional and personal growth related to IDEA (inclusion, diversity, equity and anti-racism). Ultimately, we seek to create a welcoming and inclusive community for students, faculty, staff, community members, and guests.

Retaining Our Most Vulnerable Students

The pandemic has highlighted and broadened differences between students that are comfortable with college level expectations and those that have not yet learned how to meet them. In summer 2020, faculty and staff from across campus shared their practices for retaining and fostering the growth of our most vulnerable students. You can read some of the ideas here.


Volunteer for Events

Every year, LC State is home to important cultural events such as Native American Awareness Week, Multicultural Awareness Week, and Women's History Month. Your help and support is very much appreciated.
