Diversity, Equity and Cultural Competence Committee's (DEqCC) Mission

As advisors and consultants to the Academic Senate, the Diversity, Equity and Cultural Competence Committee (DEqCC) provides faculty resources to increase cultural competence and strive for cultural proficiency.

Our Work


Six to nine faculty serve two-year renewable terms, which should be staggered to minimize turnover from year to year. Members elect a chair to serve a two-year term.


DEqCC generally meets the 4th Friday of each month, 11:00 am to 1:00 pm, in OC1030. The Agenda is emailed at least 72 hours in advance of the meeting.
