about student equity
With the passing of the 2012 Student Success Law, the college has worked to expand student success efforts with a focus on student equity, particularly for those populations identified as at-risk. This process entails a close look at data that identifies student populations that are disproportionately impacted at MiraCosta College across what the Board of Governors policy on student equity has defined as key success indicators: access, course completion, ESL and basic skills completion, degree and certificate completion, and transfer. The target populations include the following subgroups: ethnicity, gender, age, disability status, economically disadvantaged, veterans, and foster youth (Title 5, §54220).
MiraCosta College submitted our 2014-2017 Student Equity Plan that outlines goals and activities the college identified to meet areas of gap for target populations across success indicators. This page is designed to serve as a resource of work currently underway at the college in the area of student equity connected to campus-wide efforts towards student success.
The Student Equity Committee is open to everyone. Committee meetings take place on the first Monday of every month, from 3-4:30 p.m.
