NWTC Equity Guide A guide to diversity, equity and inclusion at NWTC - Page 2

At NWTC, we believe everyone has worth. We are not limited to age, gender, social status, and religion. We are unified in dignity and diversity. We believe everyone — no matter where they are in their personal and professional journeys — can dream big and rise above their current places. We believe everyone can soar higher. Resources and Tools to Cultivate an Inclusive College In this book, you will learn how NWTC is nurturing an inclusive environment. The guide highlights various strategic practices, initiatives, and goals that support diversity and inclusion at the College. Students, employees, friends of the College, and anyone interested in becoming part of the NWTC family are encouraged to read this guide. You will find information that shares our journey, and you will discover the opportunities and resources available to our College community. The fact of the matter is, everyone has different needs. Our college must think about what our people need, and how are we going to meet those needs. That’s when we start to talk about equity. Dr. H. Jeffrey Rafn, NWTC President
