Appreciating diversity means acknowledging that people think, act, interact, and learn differently. The Diversity Awareness Committee (DAC) promotes valuing the impact those differences have on our community. These differences stem from factors such as socio-economic status, language, personal beliefs, political views, age, race, color, religious creed, physical and mental abilities, sexual orientation, ancestry, marital status, gender identity, etc.
As a group of dedicated faculty, staff and students, we draw from the remarkably broad spectrum of backgrounds and experiences of Housatonic's community members, as well as that of the Greater Bridgeport Community, to contribute to the academic, professional and cultural life of the campus.
In addition, the DAC helps to develop standards by which to measure diversity appreciation and awareness, sponsors diversity workshops that address topics such as classroom dynamics, bullying and religious tolerance. It partners with other campus committees and groups to enhance programming.

Where Girls Can Explore the Career Path of Technology
The critical thinking skills and applications of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM) are fundamental to the current and future workforce. STEAM is the newest approach in connecting national STEM initiatives with art. STEM + Art = STEAM. (stemtosteam.org)
Job opportunities in STEAM are consistently on the rise and in order to succeed in these STEAM areas students are required to have a strong and innovative foundation.
Students interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM) can find over 40 associate degree and certificate opportunities at Housatonic Community College.
Housatonic Community College wants to properly prepare our students for the economic future by educating and producing a strong foundation in STEAM.
