Commitment to Diversity
NAIT is committed to serving and empowering our diverse community. We are proud to foster a campus environment where all people can feel safe, valued, respected and included. We acknowledge we have more work to do to eliminate the barriers that 2SLGBTQIA+ and other marginalized communities still face – whether it is in the workplace, classroom or community. Our commitment to advancing equity, diversity and inclusion is essential to living our values and fulfilling our promises to students, staff, industry and Alberta.
Vision for the Future
NAIT’s vision for advancing equity, diversity and inclusion is a journey, not a destination. We will listen, learn and evolve as we integrate inclusive and equitable practices into our work. Our future success lies in the continuous work of translating our vision into meaningful change across our polytechnic and beyond.
At NAIT, we believe in strong, diverse and inclusive communities. We believe that bringing your authentic self to campus always results in better teaching, learning, research and work environments.
NAIT is an economic driver in Alberta, serving industry and providing the skilled graduates needed for a prosperous future. However, our impact can be much greater. We also have the ability — and the responsibility — to be a leader in social change.
