A Place for You 

At WCTC, we recognize cross-cultural engagement, access, inclusion and belonging as core institutional values. These values drive our decision-making, resource allocation and the development of our policies and practices. We strive to create a working and learning environment that is welcoming to all.


The feeling of security and support that stems from inclusion, acceptance and identity for members of a group.


Equal access to a high-quality education, a safe environment for learning and a diverse student body that embraces all student experiences.


The degree to which all individuals in a community are welcomed, valued, respected, heard and able to participate.
