Guiding Principle for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Tri-County Technical College is committed to creating a diverse community that welcomes people of different races, cultures, ages, orientation, religion, socioeconomic levels, perspectives, abilities, and experiences. We will respect these differences in our decisions, curriculum, programs, processes and actions. We will develop equity-minded practitioners who initiate the necessary (and sometimes difficult) conversations. We will embrace decisions that lead to transformative student and employee experiences. We will intentionally sustain an inclusive environment where all individuals feel safe and valued with equal access at the College.
