DEI Glossary of Definitions

In 2017, the Lone Star College Diversity Action Committee (DAC), engaged in an extensive inquiry and feedback process to establish operational definitions for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to be used collegewide. The committee found that creating a common language was a foundational requirement to measure the performance and effectiveness of the College's strategies and initiatives.
