Student equity is designed to ensure equal educational opportunities and to promote student success for all students, regardless of race, gender, age, disability, or economic circumstance. At Citrus College, we strive to identify and provide services/resources to address gaps in student achievement and foster academic excellence.
Citrus College follows specific guidelines from the California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office (CCCCO) to extract and evaluate data in order to make informed decisions on implementation of programs and services. This research and evaluation is used by the Student Equity Committee to collaborate and develop a Student Equity Plan.
The Citrus College Student Equity Plan was written in response to policy enacted by the California State legislature to provide educational equity through "environments in which each person...has a reasonable chance to fully develop his or her potential" (Education Code §66010.2c). This plan identifies Citrus College's disproportionately impacted (DI) groups and provides goals to improve Access, Course Completion, ESL and Basic Skills Completion, Degree and Certificate Complete, and Transfer through academic and student support services across campus.
