Department of Communication and Performance Arts at Scottsdale Community College.

Darrell Copp, chair of the Department of Communication and Performance Arts at Scottsdale Community College (Ariz.), was named a 2013 Diversity Champion by the nonprofit group Community Celebrating Diversity. He was honored, along with two other recipients, at Scottsdale's 19th annual Martin Luther King Jr. Dinner Celebration. The group cited Copp's accomplishments at SCC, where he has "touched the lives of thousands of students and hundreds of employees--empowering each to be their best, to do their best and to be a positive force in the world." As a member of the college's Inclusiveness Council, he helps the school to be a welcoming, caring and supportive place for students, employees and community members. A passionate advocate for the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender issues, he was instrumental in creating an employee organization known as Equality Maricopa. Copp also manages the Scottsdale Community College Angel Trees gift-giving effort and offers his professional talent and time to help members of the Women's Leadership Group mentee program.
