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
- Raise awareness through NTC Library topical research guides
