Equity and Inclusion

Black Lives Matter at Minneapolis College

   

We see you. We hear you. We feel you.

We share your anger. We share your loss. We share in your mourning.

We know that systemic racism is real.

We know that structural inequality is real.

We know that police brutality is real.

We believe that racism is a public health threat.  

Like a virus or a cancer, racism continues to evolve.

 Racism must be stopped to affirm that Black Lives Matter.

We stand with our Black students in pursuit of racial justice.

We invite others to join us.

Let’s eliminate barriers and build bridges together.

Let’s re-imagine beloved community  

in honor of our ancestors and descendants.

Minneapolis College is changing its institutional approach, from fitting students to our institution's needs to fitting our institution to our students’ needs. We believe equity remedies personal and systemic disadvantages and removes barriers to inclusion. Through shifting attitudes about diversity and the allocation of resources, we achieve just outcomes. We create inclusion through a climate of belonging and meaningful participation. It results from equitable and culturally responsive policies and practices that generate trust.  

We state this in the present tense; there is not a destination point; this work is ongoing...
