WTCS Commitment to Progress

Our nation and state are breaking under the weight of systemic racism, inequality, fear and all the ways in which humans do not treat each other humanely. The death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police officers – in combination with a pattern of other officer-involved deaths and racialized incidents, and the harsh toll of the pandemic on people of color in general and black communities specifically – has brought communities across Wisconsin and the world to another, overdue moment of tense reckoning. These profoundly disheartening events must be a call to action for technical college leaders, faculty, staff and alumni, as well as System leaders and staff. As educators and learners, we embrace our responsibility and capacity to create inclusive, genuine spaces and systems that support equity.
