As outlined in the District's Governing Board Goals, Educational Master Plan (Download PDF reader), Equal Employment Opportunity Plan (Download PDF reader), and Student Equity Plan (Download PDF reader). We provide students with a rich and dynamic learning experience that embraces differences - emphasizing collaboration, engaging students in and out of the classroom, and encouraging them to realize their goals and become global citizens and socially responsible leaders. When you join our team at Monterey Peninsula College, you can expect to be part of an inclusive, innovative, and equity-focused community that approaches higher education as a matter of social justice requiring broad collaboration among faculty, classified staff, administration, students, and community partners.

(2) Reframe inequities as a problem of practice and view the elimination of inequities as an individual and collective responsibility;

(3) Encourage positive race-consciousness and embrace human difference;

(4) Reflect on institutional and teaching practices and aim to make them more culturally responsive; and

(5) Strategically build buy-in and participation among colleagues for equity-related initiatives.

Monterey Peninsula College seeks employees who value mentorship and working in a collegial, collaborative environment, guided by a commitment to helping all students achieve their educational goals. All departments strongly encourage collaboration across disciplines to create inclusive, integrated, and interdisciplinary learning experiences.
