in academic and social activities that build self confidence,
self-esteem, self motivation, and pride in their heritage.

policy of nondiscrimination in employment and admissions.
We hire employees and admit students of either sex and of
any race, color,non-disqualifying handicap, religion, creed,
national or ethnic origin.
