In doing so, we shall adhere to the core values to guide our decisions and behavior. We value:

Security is a shared and collaborative effort at North Seattle College. Our efforts are meant to reinforce the value that comes when we increase our capacity to view diversity as strength – even when this requires us to engage in difficult, uncomfortable conversations. To continue to reach our current and future strategic goals, we must be able to see the humanity in each other and commit to ensuring all of our voices are heard and respected. The importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion is expressed within our policy, practices, programming, decision-making, and strategic planning.
