Student Equity Executive Summary

In 2014 and 2015, San Diego City College developed Student Equity Plans intended to support the college's efforts in implementing high-impact activities to serve disproportionately impacted students. With equity initiatives underway, progress has already been made toward reducing and eliminating disproportionate impact. The following summary consists of six sections:

  • 2019 Student Equity Goals: A summary of equity goals set in 2015 with a 2019 target date. Progress toward each goal is described, relying on data updated as of 2016.
  • 2017-19 Student Equity Activities: A summary of activities to be funded to reduce disproportionate impact. Activities are linked to 2019 Student Equity Goals.
  • 2014-15 Student Equity Expenditures: A summary of equity funds expended in 2014-15.
  • 2015-16 Student Equity Expenditures: A summary of equity funds expended in 2015-16.
  • 2016-17 Student Equity Expenditures: A summary of equity funds expended in 2016-17 (as of 10/04/17).
  • Assessment of Progress on 2014 Equity Plan: A summary of progress made toward achieving the goals set in the 2014 equity plan, though the institution now relies on the 2015 goals to guide planning.
