Hartnell College embraces and celebrates differences and uniqueness among all students and employees. We welcome students and employees of all backgrounds. We have established a Diversity/EEO Advisory Committee, which is responsible to:

1. Become knowledgeable about equal employment opportunity (EEO) requirements and to promote understanding and support of EEO policies and procedures.

2. Assist in the implementation of the District’s EEO Plan in conformance with state and federal regulations and guidelines, to monitor EEO progress, and provide suggestions for Plan revisions as appropriate.

3. Sponsor events, trainings, or other activities that promote equal employment opportunity, nondiscrimination, retention, and diversity.

4. Assist the district in achieving its strategic initiatives related to diversity.
