In 1992, the California Community Colleges Board of Governors adopted a student equity policy. The goal of this policy was to improve access to and completion of higher education among student groups who have been historically underrepresented in higher education. In 2014, the State of California began to provide formal funding to colleges for the specific purpose of closing gaps in access and success among underrepresented groups. This funding stipulates that each college must develop an annual student equity plan, in which the college analyzes data on five key equity metrics, identifies gaps between student groups, and then develops interventions to close those gaps. For more information about the Student Equity Plan, visit the VC Student Equity Committee website and the CA Chancellor's Office Student Equity website.
