Minneapolis College's Equity Statement

Minneapolis College reaffirms its commitment to equity, inclusion and supporting the success of all our community members by:

  • Addressing individual acts of racism, overt or veiled and working across society to dismantle and rebuild systems that perpetuate privilege for some while disadvantaging the majority of those whom we serve.
  • Recognizing and acknowledging that we do not share the same experiences nor perspectives as one another.
  • Continuing to ensure our pedagogy, policies and services reflect and embrace the diversity of our community to thwart the harm caused by color-blind racism.

Minneapolis College declares itself an Anti-Racist Institution. We understand this journey requires that we make this stance operable by committing to:

  • Creating venues for underrepresented voices.
  • Undergoing anti-bias training and self-reflection.
  • Ensuring our measures of success are, in part, crafted by those we serve.
  • Providing multicultural services and approaches, seeking parity in outcomes.
  • Improving intercultural capacity.
  • Centering process improvements on the student experience and undergoing rigorous efforts to dismantle institutional practices with deleterious racial impacts.
  • Ensuring equity in all aspects of employment.

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.
