Through a consultative and collaborative process, members of the EDI Taskforce will utilize an intersectional equity lens to establish and implement a College framework and recommendations for equity, diversity, and inclusion to address the needs of the tri-campus SLC community, internal and external.

The SLC EDI and Belonging Task Force has developed the College’s first Equity Census for February 2021. The Equity Census is a voluntary survey that invites all SLC members to share information about themselves especially related to equity and belonging.

Courageous Conversations Listening Tours

The EDI Task Force is organizing a series of “courageous conversations” tours to increase the College’s understanding of the experiences and perceptions of students, faculty, and staff (especially those from designated equity groups) regarding matters related to equity and feelings of belonging. 

Black history month
