The State Board for Community Colleges and Occupational Education (SBCCOE or Board) recognizes that the quality of instruction and educational opportunities for all are enhanced when the diversity of the community and students served is represented in the workforce.

Therefore, the System Office and each College shall have an Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action (EEO/AA) Program which promotes practices that support diversity, equity, and inclusion of all employees.


This policy applies to the Colorado Community College System, including its Colleges (CCCS or System).


The Chancellor shall promulgate such procedures as may be needed to implement this policy.
