Philosophy of the Student Equity Plan
The Shasta College Student Equity Plan as reflected in the college's Integrated Plan reflects the District's commitment and practice in providing all members of the college community an environment where faculty, staff and students can learn, work and interact with each other in a supportive and collegial manner. The five identified student equity categories and subsequent outcomes were created in a collaborative manner in conversation with constituent groups representing a broad section of the campus community and with local community input. Barriers were identified and activities to address them were developed. The District has identified student equity as a high priority and the established goals and intended outcomes reflect this commitment.

In our work, we are guided by the following values:
Student Support and Success
