Educational Equity Committee

Welcome to the EEC!

CSUN is committed to diversity. We are proud of the plurality of faces we encounter on campus. The Educational Equity Committee aims to enhance the experience of students, faculty, staff and visitors from the richness of the varied background all bring to CSUN. We keep a pulse on the perceptions, values and experiences on diversity among the stakeholders of the campus community and take appropriate corrective steps when necessary.

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.
