Employee Resource Groups

Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) allow members to connect with other employees who share similar interests and a common bond or background. These employee-led groups are designed to meet the unique needs of each affinity or identity, and aid in fostering a diverse, inclusive workplace aligned with the college’s mission and values.

Joining an ERG is easy! All you have to do is attend a meeting. There is no formal registration required to attend. Meeting times and locations will be posted on this page soon.
