Hillsborough Community College (HCC) is an equal opportunity institution dedicated to providing a nondiscriminatory environment which promotes equal access and equal opportunity to all persons regardless of race, ethnicity, color, religion national origin, age, gender, gender preference, disability, marital status, or veteran status.
The College encourages the participation of women-owned and minority-owned business enterprises (W/MBEs), in all contracts, subcontracts, and joint ventures associated with its procurements. No person, agency or company shall be excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or otherwise discriminated against in connection with the award and performance of any HCC procurement on the basis of race, color, sex, gender, religion, ethnicity, national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation (including gender identity), marital status, genetic information, protected veteran’s status, or affiliations.
The College maintains a commitment to actively solicit responses from businesses owned by women and minorities as well as from businesses which demonstrate a good faith effort to provide bid opportunities to W/MBE subcontractors. The College strongly encourages W/MBE participation in its procurements. Additionally, the College encourages all contractors to make a good faith effort to provide bid opportunities to W/MBE subcontractors.
