The President's Alliance on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (PADEI), in consultation with the College President, coordinates college matters that promote and sustain a campus climate that creates and supports respect and diversity among all faculty, staff, administrators, and students throughout the district. MiraCosta College is committed to providing a strong, supportive, and authentic environment where difference is valued, respected, encouraged, and honored; where all faculty, staff, and students experience a sense of belonging and the freedom to express themselves, and where their experiences are recognized and valued. MiraCosta College strives to be a model for equity and inclusion. The Alliance is committed to providing opportunities for engagement both across the campus and within the communities the college serves.
