NCLCA Inclusivity Statement

The Disco Student Learning Center works closely with the National College Learning Center Association (NCLCA) for professional development and implementing best standards of practice.  The NCLCA has made a committment to recognize, promote, and celebrate inclusivity in our profession and within the organization.  That statement follows:

The National College Learning Center Association (NCLCA) represents a diverse body of educators who are dedicated to promoting excellence among learning center personnel. To that end, it is imperative to recognize and celebrate that our members are as diverse as the students we are called to serve. Moreover, given the divisive times we find ourselves in, NCLCA unequivocally stands proudly and firmly in support of our diverse peoples:

  • Our LGBTQ+ community;
  • Our Latin/x community;
  • Our African-American community;
  • Our Asian/Pacific Islander community;
  • Our native peoples; and
  • Our historically disenfranchised community including those who are underserved, underrepresented, underfinanced, and underperforming

Why this is important?

  • NCLCA recognizes the communities we serve as learning center professionals;
  • We recognize our professional members from these communities who are our friends,
  • colleagues, and mentors; and
  • We recognize the communities and the history of the cities where we host our
  • conferences

We welcome you and we see you!
