PCC for inclusion and equity

The Office of Equity and Inclusion is a key collaborator in PCC’s commitment to civil rights, diversity, equity and inclusion. OEI uses the theory of social justice as our foundational framework for operation. We recognize the intersectionality of DEI and compliance. We are advocates for an inclusive college climate, regardless of individual differences, beliefs or identities.

See some definitions of key terms in this statement.

As a part of our collaboration:

  • We interrupt and advocate for the interruption of systems of oppression at PCC.
  • We use critical race theory as a lens for analysis.
  • We are a resource, a collaborator, and a model of inclusive practices.
  • We are also a source of activism at PCC.
  • We acknowledge that the law can be problematic and is not always equitable. As a result, OEI tries to work through the inequities in our compliance work to achieve more equitable results.
