Inclusion and Equity

The Fort Collins Academy of Bartending  is committed to cultivating and preserving a culture of inclusion and connectedness. The hospitality industry is truly unique because it is one of the few industries that genuinely wants you for, YOU. We know we are able to grow and learn better together with a diverse student body. The collective sum of the individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, innovation, self-expression, and talent that you invest in your work throughout class represents not only part of who you are, but what you bring to this community. We welcome and encourage all students regardless of, previous education, opinions, culture, ethnicity, race, sex, gender identity and expression, nation of origin, age, languages spoken, veteran’s status, color, religion, disability, sexual orientation and beliefs.

Our programs are tailored to fit the needs of each class, while still creating an environment that is challenging and fun.

Like most bars, we have a no-tolerance policy. In our space, we will respect each other and protect each others right to learn.

Safe Space

The Fort Collins Academy of Bartending is dedicated to creating an atmosphere in every class in which our students can feel confident that they will not be exposed to discrimination, criticism, harassment, or any other emotional or physical harm.
