First date:Student Equity Plans

1991 -- CA. Legislature

Ed. Code 66010.2c


1992 -- Board of Governors

Student Equity Policy

1996 -- Board of Governors

Student Equity Plans

Student Equity Plans

  • Title 5 Section 54220

  • ASCCC response: Student Equity: Guidelines for Developing a Plan

    • Original 1993; revised and adopted Fall 2002

  • Last plans due in 2005

What was in the plans?

  • 5 major student equity indicators:

    • Access

    • Course completion

    • Degree and certificate completion

    • ESL and basic skills completion

    • Transfer rate

  • Student Equity Issues

    • Breakdown the above factors on the basis of ethnicity/race, gender, disability status

Why no sparks?

  • Plans often done by a single person or very small group

  • Plans sat on a shelf

  • Plans had no accountability

  • Plans had no funding tied to them

Courtship:Student Learning Outcomes

-Born in 1980’s

-Moved from East Coast to West

  • 2002: New Standards recognize importance of SLOs

Looking for Love in all the Wrong Places

  • 5 Stages of Faculty Grief and Resistance

  • Academic Senate Opposition

  • Lack of Administrative Funding for doing the work

  • Always crushed out on Equity but sometimes unable to make a real connection

Finally: Love Comes

  • Emergence of SLO Coordinators

  • Recognition from ASCCC

  • More dates with Equity

  • Looking at what’s happening in the classroom and across the Institution

Linking Equity and BSI

  • Natural merger

  • Couldn’t happen until we got to know each other

  • Couldn’t happen until “SLO” relaxed and knew how to thrive in California

Meeting the in-laws:Basic Skills Initiative

Phase III -

5 goals: 2 are specifically addressing equity

Equity in Higher Education

Involves three parts:

  • Equity in college preparation

  • Access to college

  • Success in reaching college goals

    Thomas Bailey &

    Vanessa Smith Morest

Goal 1: Research & Data Collection

  • Literature Review Addendum

    • Equity Issues & Strategies

    • High School to College Transition

    • Non-credit to Credit Transition

  • Data base

    • Survey of programs, strategies and projects

    • Includes California and national data

Goal 3: Student Equity

Evaluate all 109 2005 Student Equity Plans

Identify common statewide trends

>> Develop state resources for general needs

>> Gather baseline data

Identify discrepancies

>>Technical Assistance to individual colleges

Clergy:Board of Trustees

  • What can we do for the Board?

  • What can the Board do for the BSI?

What can we do for Boards?

Board members are politicians.

  • John McCain’s speech on the economy: praised community colleges as retraining institutions that can help with reemployment.

    We can help them understand that retraining requires Basic Skills.

  • SJ Mercury News, 4/13/08: need for more access to education through the community colleges

    We can help them understand that access and opportunity means Basic Skills

What can Boards do for Basic Skills?

  • Highlight: Basic Skills Initiative by asking for presentations on Student Equity, SLO and BSI Plans.

  • Ask: presentations on retraining and veterans assistance programs.

  • Ask: presentations on how basic skills programs are being integrated into bond funded construction plans.

What else can Boards do?

  • Boards can act as marriage broker, encouraging administrations to promote basic skills collaboration.

    • Student Services, Financial Aid, Human Resources, Counseling, each of the academic departments, and admission and records are all participants at an effective basic skills college or district.

Offspring:Student Improvement Movement

Report out from session:How do all of these activities fit in with Accreditation and SIM?

  • Forced all of our bodies to get together. Generated research. We need the data to understand what’s going on. Transparent. data process that others can critique.

  • Senate should take the initiative in integrating everything together with one voice.

  • Established a culture of data-driven self-assessment.


  • We can go back and make correction based on data. Formative evaluation.

  • Student learning and data.

  • Documentation of program review. School dinged because budget should be driven by SLOs but not documentation

  • Data. Questions you asked are part of the research design. Are the questions good.

  • Direct connection to planning. All of the areas need to be connected to the master plan. Lack of integrate planning can cause problems that are addressed by BSI+


  • Data need to be both quantitative and qualitative. Critical questions need to have both.

  • Time constraints and personnel problems make it hard to get all the information. Here is one thing we are going to take across the board and to use as a model.

  • Dialogue is crucial to the overarching planning for the success of the three initiatives.

Remain true!
