SKYCTC Diversity Plan
Southcentral Kentucky Community & Technical College’s (SKYCTC) mission is to improve the quality of life through education focused on career development, community partnerships, and economic growth. SKYCTC serves as a bridge to enhanced work skills, new career opportunities, and transfer pathways to a four-university university.
SKYCTC was established in 1939 under the joint sponsorship of the National Youth Administration (NYA) and Western Kentucky State Teachers College. With the passage of the Post-Secondary Education Improvement Act of 1997, commonly referred to as House Bill 1, the Bowling Green Regional Technology School became part of the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS). As result, the name was changed to the Bowling Green Technical College (BGTC). On August 3, 2010, BGTC received approval by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award the Associate in Arts and Associate in Science degrees making the College a comprehensive community college allowing students additional transfer opportunities. On December 7, 2012, the KCTCS Board of Regents approved SKYCTC as the new name for Bowling Green Technical College to reflect the expanded mission of the institution and honor its ten-county service region.
SKYCTC embraces a culture of inclusiveness. Around this culture of inclusiveness exists intentional plans for celebrating and recognizing the successes of our students and our employees. The faculty and staff continue to build a framework that guides institutional efforts to increase levels of engagement with our students, employees, and community members. The foundation for these efforts is the SKYCTC Diversity Plan. The Diversity Plan documents our goals and strategies for future efforts. SKYCTC faculty and staff are committed to welcoming, celebrating, and expanding knowledge and an appreciation for diversity will be found within the goals and strategies of this document.
