Madera Community College’s Equity Journey

Equity and anti-racism are core institutional values at Madera Community College. We are passionate about building and sustaining an inclusive and equitable working and learning environment for students, staff, and faculty. We work towards comprehensive organizational effectiveness by providing diversity, equity, and inclusion training to all employees, reducing equity gaps for sensitive student groups, and increasing the feelings of inclusion for all students, staff, and faculty. The MCC Equity Committee provides a platform for leadership, communication, and coordination to maximize the integration of resources through a Guided Pathways framework. The Equity Committee continuously engages in reflective processes to identify and examine practices or policies that may create inequitable access or opportunity for students and throughout the campus community. MCC believes the implementation of the campus’ first Student Equity and Achievement Plan, with coordination with campus constituents will increase alignment with MCC 2021-2026 Strategic Plan and Educational Master Plan to better serve students and move towards greater equity.

The reading of the 2022-2025 plan should be grounded in an understanding of the foundational work that has enabled the MCC to effectively drive change towards more equitable student outcomes. including, but not limited to:

  • Dedicated spaces and regular opportunities for authentic dialog around racial climate and student equity (for example, Talking Circle, College Hour, and Dialogues on Race and Anti-Racism);
  • Activities designed to build opportunities and mentorship for DI student groups. (for example, Men of Color Conference, college-wide equity summits, and workshops);
  • Increased use of existing Student Support Services and implementation and development of new services and resources. (for example, increase of support and promotion of Health and Psychological Services, Academic Success Centers, Food Pantry, etc. Development of a Basic Needs Center);
  • Increase of faculty and staff in professional development to promote equity minded teaching and advising practices. (Topics include trauma informed pedagogy, ZTC/OER implementation, and anti-racist practices.)
