SBCC Graduates

Centers for Equity and Social Justice

What We Do

The Office of Equity, Diversity and Cultural Competency plays a central role in supporting students from underreprestned and historically marginalized backgrounds though a variety of centers, programs, and initiatives.  We also strive to provide student access to basic needs resources so they can be successful in school and life.

We acknowledge that student equity is affected by the knowledge, actions, and assumptions of individuals and systems in every part of the institution. As a part of SBCC's commitment to fostering opportunity for all students, the OEDCC coordinates its work with other departments as well as institutional planning and evaluation processes.
