Student Equity Plan
In 2017, "LGBT" and "Homeless" were added to California Education Code student equity categories. Colleges are now obligated to consider these populations in order to continue receiving student equity funds. Before this update to education code, this is how some of the CCCs boldly included LGBTQ+ populations in their student equity plans.
