Madison College is committed to a strong, diverse, and inclusive culture—across all employee roles.

Why? Because that's what it takes to serve our diverse learning community best. Our employees play an integral role in the success of all our students. They lift each other up, too. That's why we look beyond the application and get to know the person behind it. We strive to hire people who’ll live our mission and values. Working together, we can help students and colleagues from a wide variety of backgrounds thrive.

A Commitment to Diversity

To live up to our mission and values, Madison College aims to have our employee demographics mirror our student demographics. This effort is a work in progress that helps to cultivate a community of belonging, holistic support, and connection at Madison College. It’s just one way we continue to work to create a more welcoming and inclusive environment where all our learners and employees can succeed.
