The ELAC Student Equity Plan reflects the District's commitment and practice in providing all members of the college community an environment where faculty, staff and students can learn, work and interact with each other in a supportive and collegial manner. The College District has identified student equity as a high priority for itself, and the goals of the committee reflect this commitment.

The Student Equity Advisory Committee will be comprised college-wide of administrators, faculty, classified staff, students, and community members. It will provide the overall direction of the efforts and implementation of the ELAC Student Equity Plan and the combined Integrated Plan with the Student Success and Support Program and Student Success Committees.
