RCC Equity Commitment

RCC is committed to establishing an effective, campus-wide culture of outreach. Targeting equity groups with academic, instructional, self-affirming, and direct support allows students to remain engaged in campus life and successfully complete coursework, leading to degree completion and/or transfer opportunities. 

Through intrusive and deliberate support, students who fall into an equity service gap:

 
  1. Will be guided into RCC’s Pathway Contract model.
  2. Will have the opportunity to be engaged in academic and equity activities within a supportive community.
  3. Be provided opportunities to explore unique academic and professional interests (RCC Equity Plan 2017-2018).
