Message from Vice President of Equity and Inclusion

"You are considering Anoka Technical College for a reason.  I hope that in addition to receiving an excellent education that will prepare you for the practical aspects of your current or future job, you’ll also learn about who you are, and who others are in the ever-changing experience of being in community.  As has always been the case, there’s an ever-present need to be able to interact and engage with people from various backgrounds.  At ATC, we hope you’ll not only take advantage of co-curricular opportunities, but also pay attention to how faculty and staff interact and engage with you and others.  Start practicing the skills necessary to help you have healthy relationships that will serve you well wherever life leads you.

And if there’s more you want to learn, please reach out to the faculty and staff to ask for advice and guidance.  We’re here to help you be successful and get the most you can out of your ATC experience!"

Brandyn Woodard, Vice President of Equity & Inclusion, ATC & ARCC
