Equity Center

Equity Center logoWe are excited to open our new space as of 2019! Why Equity? We are multi-issue, intersectional, and want students to be able to bring their full selves into our space. We strive to create a welcoming, non-judgemental environment where our campus community can learn together on how to better support our disproportionately impacted (DI) populations.

Students of color, LGBTQIA+, 1st generation, low-income, foster youth, undocumented students, veterans, and other vulnerable populations are an important part of our campus. We want to ensure they feel supported and connected to succeed at the same rates as other Falcons, who may face fewer barriers to success.
