Beginning with the college’s inception in 1874, the diversity timeline provides a historic record of major milestones related to diversity at CC.
Find out the name of CC’s first female graduate, the fifth person to graduate from the college during a time when the idea of a college education for women was still a radical concept. Learn about Booker T. Washington’s visit to campus, speaking to a standing-room only crowd. Use the site to walk through time at CC, better understanding the campus climate and key benchmarks, from the establishment of the Bisexual, Gay, and Lesbian Alliance, to the founding and purpose of the Glass House, to last year’s Courageous Conversations about diversity on campus. The diversity timeline spans decades, documenting CC’s history and covering all aspects of CC’s diverse community.
The timeline also supports CC’s strategic initiative to grow a more diverse and inclusive campus, and aligns with the establishment of the college’s diversity commitment.
