DIVERSITY, EQUITY, & 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 everchanging global society.
Hennepin Technical College’s commitment to diversity compels it to confront prejudicial, discriminatory behaviors and policies.
