Our greatest resource is our people and Blackhawk Technical College values the differences that people bring to the environment. Valuing diversity is one of the College's Values and we embrace diversity in all of its manifestations such as ethnicity, disability, cultural, race, age, gender, and religion. The Diversity Advancement Committee is a cross-section of faculty, staff and administration that provide abundant educational opportunities designed to challenge stereotypes, discrimination and biased behaviors that prohibit a culture of inclusion and fairness. The activities include book/film seminars, annual Diversity Week, cultural field trips, diversity training seminars and conferences, community partnerships, annual retreats, and positive quotes published bi-monthly in the College's employee newsletter, Coffeebreak.
