Why the Committee?

The Student Equity and Success Committee provides direction for the efforts, implementation, and evaluation of the ongoing Student Equity Plan. The Plan is intended to help foster student engagement and guide teaching practices, as well as foster an inclusive and equitable campus environment. The Committee has representatives from each of the related programs who act as area representatives, providing feedback regarding mandates, applicable legislation, and needs.

Student Equity Plans

Each year, the Student Equity and Success Committee outlines an Equity Plan. This plan articulates goals for the upcoming year and helps direct the activities that will make Cabrillo College an institution committed to equity. Aspects of the plan include developing new and existing programs and services to better serve the equity needs of students, such as creating internal processes that give more structure to the approval, funding, and assessment of various equity proposals and sponsoring college-wide events and ongoing efforts to make Cabrillo’s plans and services more inclusive for the entire community.
