Equity

Equity LogoSimply put, Equity at LTCC means making sure students have access to the academic support, mentoring, and financial assistance they need to succeed in college and reach their full potential. Providing access and support isn’t new to LTCC: multiple initiatives and programs dedicated to improving access have been underway for many years. But the

Equity Office strives to do something different by focusing on improving access and closing performance gaps for minority students, many of whom are first-generation college students struggling with multiple jobs, language barriers, affordable childcare, and other obstacles that can all too easily hamper academic success.
