Be a Voice for Progress
Dr. Dianne Van Hook
As a community college, we have a unique role to be a voice for progress. Right now, our faculty, staff, administration, and student leaders at College of the Canyons have an opportunity and a moral responsibility to create, review, design, and enact change for our community and the students within our college. College of the Canyons is committed to the long-term, permanent review and assessment of all its practices to ensure, as an entity of academic integrity and learning, it is doing everything it can to ensure all barriers, by intent or neglect, are removed.
