Student Success and Equity Committee


The primary purpose of the Success and Equity Committee is to support and lead innovative campus initiatives that strengthen student access and success in an environment that fosters equity, diversity, and inclusion. The Committee makes recommendations to the College Council regarding student success and equity initiatives, programs and plans.

Through the integrated efforts of academic and student services, the Student Success and Equity Committee engages in data analysis and dialog to provide a platform for collaboration and communication which focus on equity-minded student success, a culture of inclusivity, global consciousness, and a respect for diversity across all student success and equity efforts and throughout the College.
