The mission of the Diversity Team is to serve as diversity champions and exemplars; to guide and advise PPCC on policy, procedures and practices that support PPCC’s Strategic Plan and to shape a sustainable inclusive excellence initiative and a culture based on mutual respect and civility in which everyone can engage.


Dr. Lance Bolton, PPCC President (ex officio member) and Keith R. Barnes, Executive Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
