Equity and Diversity Advisory Council
SCC strives to create a campus community with a richly diverse intellectual and social environment where equal
opportunity and equal protection are afforded to all. The college's Equity and Diversity Advisory Council (EDAC) was
created to pursue that vision.
EDAC Meetings are held in the Student Activities Conference Room in the Lair (Building 6) and
generally take place on the fourth Tuesday of each month with the exception of summer quarter.
The SCC EDAC is an Advisory Council. Our mission is to create a diverse campus community in which students, employees,
and community partners are treated with respect and dignity. We believe our campus is greatly enriched by the presence
of people with diverse backgrounds and cultural perspectives.
In order to achieve such an environment, we will provide recommendations annually to the College Alliance and
- Identify and remove practices and structures that discriminate, marginalize, or oppress certain groups of people
- Increase diversity among our student body and our employees
- Support diversity-based initiatives on campus and within the community
The Council's purpose is to support the college's mission of being a leader in providing accessible and affordable
educational opportunities responsive to the needs of our diverse population. In addition to providing coordination of
the college's diversity initiatives, the EDAC will focus on the following major areas: student success, teaching and
training, employee recruitment and retention, social justice, and community relations.
