Office of Student Equity
Our Mission and Goals
The mission of the Office of Student Equity is to eradicate the opportunity gap among all students at CCSF.
The primary goals of the Office of Student Equity will be to:
- Support the integration of equity as a core planning value at all levels of the college.
- Support all college stakeholders in developing interventions designed to close opportunity gaps
- Build the capacity of college constituencies to access, analyze and track data
In addition, the Office of Student Equity will work closely with the Student Learning Outcomes committee of the Academic Senate and the Research and Planning Department to continue regular equity-themed data analysis sessions with faculty and staff, coaching groups and individuals about analysis of Student Learning Outcomes disaggregated by focus populations as well as assisting faculty and staff with evaluation of opportunity gaps in their departments and programs.
This increased capacity will improve access to and understanding of data, data systems and data analysis. In turn, the college community will increase skills and abilities related to data collection, data reporting and outcomes assessment.
OSE Update: Student Equity and Achievement (SEA) Program
Over the course of last year, the categorical fund leads for Student Equity (SE), Basic Skills (BSI), Student Success (SSSP) worked on creating an integrated plan for the State Chancellor's Office. As a result, the state is now integrating the three funds into the Student Equity and Achievement (SEA) Program. A few of us are attending training sessions this month and next to learn more about what other changes will come with this, but for now, what we do know is that what used to be three different funding programs will now function under the umbrella program called Student Equity and Achievement (SEA) Program. Stay tuned!
The Student Equity and Achievement Program, established in Education
Code (EC) 78222, consolidates the Basic Skills Initiative (BSI),
Student Equity (SE) and the Student Success and Support Program (SSSP)
with the intent of supporting Guided Pathways and the system wide goal
to eliminate achievement gaps. As a condition of receiving funds, a
district shall comply with the following: maintain an equity plan;
provide matriculation services; adopt placement policies (AB 705) and
provide all students with an educational plan.
