Equity Center logoJoin us in the Equity Center! Why Equity? We are multi-issue, intersectional, and want students to be able to bring their full selves into our space. We strive to create a welcoming, non-judgemental environment where our campus community can learn together on how to better support our disproportionately impacted (DI) populations.

Students of color, LGBTQIA+, 1 st generation, low-income, foster youth, undocumented students, veterans, and other vulnerable populations are an important part of our campus. We want to ensure they feel supported and connected to succeed at the same rates as other Falcons, who may face fewer barriers to success.
