In fulfillment of our educational mission, California State University, Northridge (CSUN) is committed to educational equity. CSUN recognizes that educational equity does not depend on ethnic, religious, or linguistic diversity alone. The concepts and dimensions of educational equity shall include, but are not limited to race, ethnic/cultural identity, religious belief, sexual orientation, sex/gender, sexual identity, disability, socioeconomic status, cultural orientation, veteran status, national origin and age. Accordingly, through effective and well-communicated policies, we integrate values that support inclusion and prevent discrimination.
Our goal is to have this commitment reflected in our campus climate which strives to welcome, recognize, and promote respect for the diversity of the community it serves. The goals of the Educational Equity Committee (EEC) are to incorporate knowledge and appreciation of diverse cultural values in CSUN’s curriculum and extracurricular activities. To achieve these goals, the members of EEC work towards:
- Sustaining educational equity through development, promotion, maintenance and institutionalization of activities and programs which further our understanding of individual and group diversity, examples of which include but are not limited to:
- Ensuring that the concepts and dimensions of educational equity are advanced and incorporated into every aspect of university activity including in academic programs, extra-curricular activities, and employment practices.
The responsibility created by CSUN’s commitment to educational equity is shared by its campus stakeholders including faculty, staff, administrators, and students alike.
