Diversity and Inclusion

The 2019-2024 Strategic Plan for Diversity has been approved and was presented to the campus


Our Mission:

To promote a safe and welcoming environment for all who learn, work at, and visit our campus, and to provide opportunities to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to thrive in our increasingly diverse region, state, nation and world.

Our vision:

At Northwest Technical College, we embrace diversity and construct safe, welcoming, and inclusive physical and online spaces for all who learn, work at, and visit the campus. We seek to increase the diversity of the student body and employees so that it resembles the variation found regionally. We promote opportunities for students and employees to develop culturally responsive skills and knowledge, especially as it pertains to the Ojibwe. We create and sustain institutional and collaborative structures that are responsive to identified student and employee needs.

we have three strategic priorities:

  1. Provide opportunities for online and on campus students and employees to develop as culturally responsive individuals.
  2. Promote the value of a demographically diverse and inclusive student body, faculty, and staff.
  3. Create supportive and collaborative institutional structures to address essential student needs such as transportation, food, childcare, housing, and belonging.
