Inclusion.....Equity.....Diversity



The Northeast Higher Education District’s (NHED) mission
is to lead our colleges to a learning and working environment
that maximizes the potential of all students and employees while
acknowledging their unique contributions and differences.
We want to ensure that our strongly held values of inclusion,
respect and acceptance are integrated into our campus culture,
policies, procedures and every day interactions.

As the Diversity Officer for the district, I am committed to ensuring
our colleges provide a safe and welcoming environment for all of our
learners and their families, faculty, staff and community members.

With respect,

Carmen Bradach
Chief Human Resources and Diversity Officer
