Acknowledgement of Land
We acknowledge that Northwest Technical College is located on land and water that is the current and ancestral homeland of the Ojibwe and Dakota. We acknowledge the painful history of genocide, forced assimilation, and efforts to alienate the Indigenous inhabitants from their territory here. We honor and respect the many diverse Indigenous peoples still connected to this land, retained tribal sovereignty, treaty rights, and cultural resilience. Indigenous people are spiritual and physical caretakers of this land to which we all belong. Northwest Technical College respects these sacred lands, stands with the community members from these Nations, and will fight injustice in all its forms.
Northwest Technical College engages, supports and prepares students for rewarding careers through innovative programs and hands-on learning.
Northwest Technical College will be a regional leader in providing accessible and innovative education to meet the evolving needs of our diverse students, communities and workforce.
