As a learning centered college, we are committed to ensuring that all of our students have the opportunity to succeed.

Equity NOW Mission Statement

The mission of the Equity NOW committee is to decrease opportunity and achievement gaps for our students by collecting and analyzing data, cultivating equity consciousness and awareness on campus, engaging in ongoing review and improvement of college policies and practices, and developing curriculum and support services that are culturally relevant, inclusive, and dynamic.
