Whatcom Community College’s physical campus is closed beginning 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 25, 2020 for a minimum of two weeks to ensure alignment with Washington State Governor Jay Inslee’s statewide “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” order. Online instruction and working remotely will continue. Students and employees should not come to campus during this time. Spring quarter instruction will still begin online on Wednesday, April 15.

It is important to emphasize that Whatcom Community College remains operational and dedicated to ensuring the academic mission continues through this challenging time. We have moved services and instruction online to the greatest extent possible to keep our community healthy. Remote services will differ for various service areas, departments, and resources. Visit this remote services directory to learn how you can easily access the WCC services you need without visiting campus. 

Please continue to check your email and for regular updates. 

Purpose of Employee Resource Groups

Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) provide forums for employees to gather and share ideas about matters that affect their professional development and work at Whatcom Community College (WCC). WCC administration is supportive of a system of Employee Resource Groups that contribute to the following:

  • Foster employee development
  • Contribute to the College’s commitment to advancing social equity, while challenging systems of power, privilege and inequities
  • Strengthen networking and cohesiveness across the College, and promote career and professional development 
  • Provide important feedback to management and assist with efforts to attract and retain highly qualified candidates for employment at WCC
Employee Resource Group Leads must create a legacy document or brief annual summary that includes the name of the lead contact for the following year, number of meetings held, participant names, and highlights from the previous year related the strategic plan, retention, professional development, and/or the group’s goals. This is due by July of each year.
