Compton College / Academic Programs / Student Equity Program / Planning Committee


The SEP committee was assisted by the Institutional Research and Planning Department in collecting and analyzing student success data disaggregated by ethnicity, gender, disability, foster youth and veteran status, and low income economic standing to identify areas of need.

The SEP committee is devoted in developing a SEP that expands and builds upon benchmark programs that exist at the Compton Center.  Some of the programs such as MESA, Student Success Center which house a Reading and Writing Center, a Math and Science Center will continue to provide academic services to our targeted economically, racial and ethnic cohorts, foster youth, and basic skills students.  The SEP will provide additional support in the form of staffing, equity-based counselors, tutoring and other intrusive services.  The Student Equity Plan will also provide college tours for our targeted disproportionately impacted students at all levels to introduce and encourage transfer options.  Professional development will also bed provide for administrators, faculty, staff and students to address topics related "equity".

Lastly, the SEP committee has implemented a "SEP funding proposal" process where all members of the college district are invited to submit an equity activity proposal to be funded out of SEP funds.  Guidelines and an overview of acceptable projects approved by the Chancellors are sent to all members of the district for review and to serve as a guide.  The idea for this process is to allow all departments, programs and services of the campus an opportunity to introduce or strengthen activities aimed closing the achievement gap.
