Student Equity Plan

 

The goal of the LMC Student Equity Plan (SEP) is institutional equity for all students. This focus has been integrated into the LMC culture for several years now and it is embedded in many campus initiatives and practices. LMC’s Student Equity Plan (SEP) reflects a comprehensive effort by faculty, staff and management to consider the needs of the campus holistically including infrastructure, staffing, special student populations, professional resources and the development of guidelines, goals and milestones to facilitate the college’s full implementation of equity standards. The SEP details programs and activities for the 2016-17 program year, but it is a 5 year plan, by which we will " move the needle" on student equity within an expanding academic and student support environment.

A core value of the LMC Student Equity Plan, as agreed upon by the Student Equity Plan Advisory Committee, is moving the institution away from traditional student deficits models (i.e. focusing on what students are lacking and what additional support they need based on this deficiency), to the principle of institutional responsibility that looks at specific student populations the institution has historically been unsuccessful in fully serving. Specific programs and activities are designed to ensure the success of all students with an emphasis on targeted populations.
