RCC Equity Commitment

RCC is committed to establishing an effective, campus-wide culture of outreach.

Through intrusive and deliberate support, students who fall into an equity service gap:

  1. Will be guided into RCC’s 1+2+2.
  2. Will have the opportunity to be engaged in academic and equity activities within a supportive community.
  3. Be provided opportunities to explore unique academic and professional interests (RCC Equity Plan 2017-2018).
