Student Equity Committee

Standing Committee

Student Equity Committee Charge

The Student Equity Committee (SEC) helps the college successfully serve the educational needs of college students who seek higher education regardless of their social, educational, ethnic or cultural backgrounds, sexual orientation, gender expression, age, and/or disabilities.  The committee maintains and implements the Student Equity Plan that monitors student access, progress, success, completion, transfer and employment, as well as works to support an inclusive campus climate and environment for all students.  The committee makes recommendations and offers strategies for action through the shared governance structure to address discrepancies that exist for underrepresented/underserved students.  In addition, the Committee supports the Student Success and Support Program (SSSP) which assists students with successful entry, placement, progression, and achievement of their educational goals.
