This office exists to foster a culture of equity through analysis, awareness, and advocacy of diverse populations and identify more inclusive practices for employees and students. EDI aims to be consistent and transparent in its collection and distribution of data to key stakeholders. Educational tools and resources will be provided and available on related topics. In order to serve as a support and advocate for equity and inclusion efforts, EDI will work collaboratively with all levels of leadership at LSC, and also with stakeholders in our community, to address the needs of our diverse population of employees and students.
Our vision is for every LSC employee and student to respect diversity and practice inclusion to advance equity at Lone Star College.
What is Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion?
Equity, diversity, and inclusion are buzz words we often hear in the world of higher education, but what do they really mean? What do they look like in action? How does each member of the LSC community contribute to equity, diversity, and inclusion?
The department of Governance, Equity, and Records (GER), in conjunction with the LSC Diversity Action Committee (DAC), engaged in an extensive inquiry and feedback process to establish operational definitions for equity, diversity, and inclusion to be used college-wide. Creating a common language is a foundational requirement to measure the performance and effectiveness of the College's strategies and initiatives. As we collectively strive to advance LSC's strategic goals, GER looks forward to continued opportunities to support you in your efforts.
