Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

About Us

Gateway's Diversity, Equity & Inclusion aspires to foster a sense of belonging by cultivating a welcoming, open, and collaborative environment. Our DEI office serves as an awareness spark for all members of the Gateway community by offering strategic educational programming, community partnerships, and co-curricular activities intended to encourage a sense of belonging, self-reflection, and personal growth.

Principles – Educate, Embrace, and Encourage

The DEI intentionally adopted the principles of Educate, Embrace, and Encourage to nurture diversity, equity, and inclusion competencies through educational programming, strategies to embrace difference, and encourage self-reflection through dialog for societal transformation.

Gateway's Commitment to Diversity

Gateway Community & Technical College is committed to creating a campus environment that values the exploration, appreciation, and celebration of diversity while promoting inclusiveness, multiculturalism, and global awareness.
