Saint Paul College A Community & Technical College

​Solidarity Programs

The Saint Paul College community is an incredibly vibrant and diverse community. As such, we acknowledge the importance of recognizing and celebrating the vast diversity in cultures and identities that make up this community. We also acknowledge the importance of working together to address issues that members of our community face because of these cultures and identities. In conjunction with the Saint Paul College Inclusive Vision and Values Statement, Solidarity programs intend to “foster a culture and atmosphere of belonging, collaboration, and mutual respect” at Saint Paul College.

Through participating in Solidarity programs, we hope for students to develop the ability to:
