• Commitment to Community (C2C)

    Commitment to Community (C2C) is a university-wide diversity initiatives committee of students, faculty, and staff. The committee invites all interested members of the campus community to participate; however, it draws its officers largely from undergraduate students, and from faculty and staff from the diversity initiatives steering committee (DISC). Our mission is to foster diversity awareness, knowledge, and understanding through discussion, dialogue and community building. C2C members are committed to create and support individual/institutional change for equity and justice in the many ways we relate, learn and live in our various communities inside and outside of Hamline University.
