CAC is committed to creating a campus atmosphere that cultivates diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI). Alongside our core values, we are building an environment that encompasses openness, awareness and empathy for our entire community, while respecting our host country.
Our environment is designed to create an equitable and inclusive community in which all members can deepen and appreciate ongoing opportunities and challenges inherent in growing and learning from one another. We believe in belonging for all. Doing this work well for our students, faculty, staff and community brings us closer to our mission - building character to thrive as global citizens.
CAC is dedicated to developing an environment where community members feel welcome and comfortable without fear of discrimination. This commitment deepens our capacity as a community to improve and accept inclusion.
The Cairo American College Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion design team raises awareness and develops strategies with regards to diversity and inclusion, while respecting cultural norms and laws in our host country. We engage co-workers in DE&I conversation and training as well as review and recommend policies and procedures that will promote workplace DE&I. The ultimate goal of this team is to provide for the betterment of the Cairo American College campus culture so that everyone is provided with a holistic educational, professional and inclusive experience.
