Diversity

DiversityMSTC believes that acknowledging and embracing diversity is core piece of our strength as an educational institution. The Diversity Committee, made up of staff and students, approaches diversity at MSTC as diversity of thought.

This acknowledges that each of us brings something unique to the table. Through our differences we are stronger as a whole.
