ARC Institutional Equity Plan

The Institutional Equity Plan provides the framework for ARC’s ongoing efforts to actualize its institution-wide commitment to equity and social justice. It identifies areas for continuing growth and improvement as well as creating a shared understanding of what equity means at American River College.

The plan proposes a foundation for this work as well as exploring the opportunities and challenges that surfaced in dialogue with stakeholders. This plan should be considered a living document that is regularly visited, evaluated, and adapted. The project team was comprised of a group of students, staff, faculty and administrators who contributed their efforts to development of the ARC Institutional Equity Plan.
