Equal Opportunity Policy

Blackhawk Technical College (BTC) desires to build a community in which opportunity is equalized and a climate of acceptance is fostered, with the inclusion of students and employees from a wide variety of backgrounds. The College recognizes that diversity in the academic environment fosters cultural awareness, mutual understanding and respect, and provides suitable role models for all students.

Equal opportunity will be provided in accordance with federal, state, and local nondiscrimination laws and executive orders. An Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Plan for equal opportunity in employment and education will be monitored by the District’s Equal Opportunity Officer appointed by the President/District Director. All administrators, supervisors, and employees are responsible for the implementation of the Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Plan and adherence to all nondiscrimination and equal opportunity policies and procedures.

The College will seek assurance from all contractors and suppliers of products and services that they do not discriminate. The purchase of products and services from women, minority, and disabled business owners will be encouraged.

Questions should be directed to the BTC Equal Opportunity Officer at 6004 S County Road G, P.O. Box 5009, Janesville, WI 53547-5009, (608) 757-7773.
