Equity and Success
Equity is just and fair inclusion. It’s about meeting students where they are at in order for them to be successful.
At Mission College, we are committed to embedding equitable practices in all that we do to create conditions for all students to succeed.
Mission hosts several cultural and equity-themed events throughout the year featuring poets, speakers, and music.
This means acknowledging the systemic barriers that exists and prevents many historically disproportionately impacted populations from succeeding and meeting their intended educational goals.
In Summer 2017, the Student Equity & Success Committee developed a definition of what equity means at Mission College and how we could put it into action to inform our practices as faculty, classified professionals, and administrators in serving our students.
Vision of Equity
A student-centered, bias-free learning community for all.
To engage in diligent treatment of the entire campus community through social justice, transparency, and cultural humility that allows for all students to succeed.
In addition to clubs and a thriving roster of sports teams, we have a number of areas on our campus that support diverse student populations. These include first-generation college students, single parents, undocumented immigrants, and veterans.
