Diversity Services

We create a culture of inclusion, appreciation of differences, and promotion of social justice throughout the NTC community. As a college, NTC believes and promotes an inclusive environment that celebrates, embraces and respects individual differences.

Support for Students

We take a broad approach to diversity to include ethnic and racial backgrounds; veteran and military status; disabilities; income levels; and gender equity of non-traditional occupations.

Diversity services for students includes events related to diversity topics and overall support of an inclusive environment across NTC campuses. This is done through:

  • Promotion of activities that help build leadership skills
  • Encourage participation in family events hosted by NTC
  • Highlight events related to financial literacy
  • Coordinate focus groups
  • Refer students to appropriate NTC and community resources
  • Touch base to check in on how things are going
