Diversity and Inclusion
At NTCC, we work diligently to understand the world around us by embracing different beliefs, cultures, experiences and perspectives. Our Diversity and Inclusion efforts are centered around fostering a college climate that is welcoming and open to new ideas that challenge and motivate us to be more connected to our community. We also collaborate with local business partners and community leaders to ensure that we continue to work collaboratively and think critically about the social disparities that are present in the communities that we serve.
Outcomes and Goals:
The NTCC Diversity and Inclusion Committee has established the following outcomes and goals for the 2021-2022 academic year:

- Diversity and Representation: Ensuring a diverse and representative college faculty, staff, and students based on our service area
- Student Achievement & Support: Addressing equitable achievement across student populations and providing need-based support

Diversity and Inclusion Events and Resources
The Diversity and Inclusion Committee recognizes cultural and identification related celebrations including holidays and heritage/history months through featured lecture series. To learn more about upcoming lectures and view past lectures, visit the webpages below.
The NTCC Expression Series was sparked out of the desire to celebrate diversity through artistic expression. The first installment of the series was held in March 2021 and will occur once each semester. Students, faculty, staff and alumni are encouraged to showcase their talents though spoken word, poetry, artwork, and/or musical expression in this series.
In celebration of Black History Month and to help further facilitate university transfer pathways, Northshore Technical Community College hosted an HBCU (Historically Black Colleges & Universities) transfer fair with Louisiana universities. This fair also included testimonials from NTCC employees who attended HBCUs.
One of the most critical components of enhancing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion efforts is education. Please use the link below to view materials that will enhance your knowledge and understanding of various topics related to DE&I.
The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I) Committee oversees all activities that support the D&I efforts of the College and provides recommendations to the Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs, Diversity and Inclusion. The committee and sub-committees work throughout the year to make recommendations and implement strategies to address DE&I in Assessment and Planning, College Mission, Curriculum Development, Awareness and Programming, Employee and Student Training, Representation, Recruitment, and Mentorship.
