AAP Diversity and Inclusion Assessment Report
The college's Council for Diversity + Inclusion is charged with creating a more equitable and inclusive community at AAP.
In June 2020, following the murder of George Floyd and BLM protests, AAP faculty, staff, and students began conversations with college leadership to initiate significant shifts in curricular and cocurricular programming. AAP's Council for Diversity + Inclusion was founded soon after and was charged with creating a comprehensive plan to guide change and action in many different areas across the college.
