The way to right wrongs is to turn the light of truth upon them. By Ida B. Wells-Barnett

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.

Our Vision Statement

The City College of San Francisco Office of Student Equity is committed to inclusivity, equity, and diversity among our college community members, including students, staff, faculty, and administrators. We believe that all students, of varying backgrounds, races, nationalities, genders, sexual orientations, beliefs, religions, socio-economic statuses, have the right to access higher education and receive the resources and support they need to achieve their educational and professional goals. We welcome, encourage, and engage in diverse perspectives in respectful dialogue, and our commitment is to be critically race-conscious, anti-racist, and culturally responsive in all that we do. Education is for all who enter the doors of this college. We welcome you.

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.
