In alignment with Durham Technical Community College’s mission, the Office of Equity and Inclusion is committed to valuing the unique experiences of individuals, the diversity of the community, and equitable outcomes for all students and employees. We will strive to adopt and sustain inclusive practices and programs, while fostering an environment where all feel valued, respected and safe. Our office will lead efforts in building sustainable partnerships that promote equity of services, inclusion and diversity, advocate for social justice and monitor programming and compliance.
Equity, Inclusivity, and Diversity at Durham Tech: This is what we do. This is who we are.
As organizations around the country issue statements in support of social justice, Durham Tech spoke first with our student representatives, our community, and our employees. As an institution of higher learning, we believe it is our responsibility to focus on issues of equity, inclusivity and diversity and to base our actions and decisions on data and to continue to find ways to learn and lead on these priorities. Our commitment is not to words, but to you and to the core values of our institution.
Durham Tech is an Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity, ADA, Section 504 Institution and does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, color, age, religion, national origin, or disability. In our classrooms and campus work areas, we believe in giving everyone the opportunity to succeed and we are committed to creating a climate that is safe and welcoming for all.
At Durham Tech our differences are our strength! Our office is located in Phillips Building (Building 3), suite 3-103.
