Pluralism and Social Justice at Cascadia College

Cascadia College believes that every person's background, which includes identifiers such as ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, and ability, helps enrich the lives of others when an environment is conducive to the expression of that identity.

Many institutions use the worlds "multi-cultural" or "diversity" to express this concept. Cascadia College uses the world "pluralism." It is our deep commitment to provide a space where pluralism thrives and leads to social justice, another important concept on our campus.


Pluralism at Cascadia is an intentional culture where everyone's history contributes to the collective success of our community.

Social Justice

Social Justices at Cascadia is a condition in which each member of our community has access to the resources and opportunities they need to sustain well-being and quality of life.

Cascadia's vision

Our goal is to help others learn about and express a commitment to pluralism and social justice. This commitment comes first from employees so that we may competently help students learn to respect, value and support difference.

We acknowledge that this is an on-going process that renews itself with the start of every academic year. Yet, we ultimately hope that students will understand these concepts and carry them forward to the next stage of their lives.

The Committee for Institutional Pluralism and Social Justice meets to discuss these issues and develop initiatives. 

When you see the Pluralitree above, you'll know that you've reached a place that understands and supports pluralism and social justice.
