Equity Statement

Core Plus Construction is committed to building a positive, purposeful program so that barriers to high-quality, relevant construction trades education are removed. Diversity among participants is valued and embraced. Student backgrounds (ability, racial, ethnic, religious, gender, gender identity, class, traumatic experiences) do not limit their, or others’ expectations of student outcomes. Our goal is to ensure the program’s resources are free, easy to access, and open to all so that every student achieves what is needed to build a foundation for a successful career in construction and the built environment. The goal of this equity statement is to provide a great construction education for every student.
