At Delta College, we believe that we all play a critical role in our students' experiences and thus our students' success. The Office of Student Equity & Diversity supports “Equity-Mindedness” efforts of professional development for staff and faculty. The term “Equity-Mindedness” refers to the perspective or mode of thinking exhibited by practitioners who call attention to patterns of inequity in student outcomes. These practitioners are willing to take personal and institutional responsibility for the success of their students, and critically reassess their own practices.
Through these efforts, we hope to bring together faculty and staff from a variety of roles and disciplines for in-depth discussions to support our campus-wide efforts to creating an equitable and inclusive environment while also fostering greater intentional collaboration to develop strategic supports to better serve our students' needs.
