Our Mission

Under the auspices of the President, the Office of Institutional Equity provides leadership and guidance to the CCRI campus community on issues of equity to foster inclusive learning and workspaces.

Through educational initiatives, consultation and oversight of our College’s harassment prevention and nondiscrimination policies and reporting systems (including all aspects of AA/EEO compliance and Title IX), the Office of Institutional Equity:

  • Serves students, faculty and staff as a primary resource for reporting incidents of unlawful harassment or discrimination,

  • Develops and disseminates policies related to equity, discrimination, and harassment,

  • Supports efforts to strengthen college organizational culture, and

  • Guides recruitment and hiring practices to support an equitable and performance-based hiring process
