DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION

 COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY, EQUITY, & INCLUSION

Hennepin Technical College recognizes, respects, and honors diversity existing in society due to an individual’s age, ethnicity, national origin, race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, disability, marital status, familial status, religious beliefs, creeds, and socioeconomic status.

The college is committed, through its programs and policies, to embracing diversity, fostering inclusiveness, and advancing equity in creating a work and educational environment that empowers individuals to live and work productively in an ever-changing global society.

Hennepin Technical College’s commitment to diversity compels it to confront prejudicial, discriminatory behaviors and policies. The college supports aggressive steps and programs intended to remedy the historical underrepresentation of persons of color, women, veterans, and persons with disabilities in the workforce, and in ensuring a learning environment that is inclusive and equitable for all.
