Mendocino College Equity Programs
“College student equity plans focus on increasing access, course completion, ESL and basic skills completion, degrees, certificates and transfer for all students as measured by success indicators linked to the CCC Student Success Scorecard, and other measures developed in consultation with local colleges. “Success indicators” are used to identify and measure areas for which disadvantaged populations may be impacted by issues of equal opportunity. Title 5 regulations specify that colleges must review and address the following populations when looking at disproportionate impact" (State Budget trailer bill, SB 860, 2014):
American Indians or Alaskan natives,
Asians or Pacific Islanders,
persons with disabilities (§54220(d))
Low Income Students
"Each college develops specific goals/outcomes and actions to address disparities that are discovered, disaggregating data for indicators by student demographics, preferably in program review. College plans must describe the implementation of each indicator, as well as policies, activities and procedures as they relate to improving equity and success at the college."
Mendocino College has identified and addresses the following disproportionately impacted populations:
