Welcome!

The Office for Equity and Inclusion (OEI) leads and facilitates the development of institutional policies and protocols intended to create a more representative, equitable and inclusive Skagit Valley College. The OEI leads by example, partnering with campus departments and units to create inclusive and equitable educational opportunities for all students, faculty and professional staff.
With a collaborative approach to diversity, equity and inclusion efforts, The Office for Equity and Inclusion will serve as the primary college resource for the identification and analysis of best practices and national trends related to access, achievement, inclusion, intercultural competencies, diversity and equity.

The OEI will:

  • Collaborate with other college offices to develop and coordinate outreach and awareness programs designed to increase the enrollment and success of traditionally underrepresented student populations.
  • Collaborate with the Office of Institutional Effectiveness & Planning to develop, monitor and analyze measures of institutional effectiveness related to diversity, equity and inclusion.
  • Collaborate and support recruitment strategies for diverse candidate pools and professional training to promote intercultural competencies and a climate of equity and inclusion.
  • Provide leadership and support to the College’s Inclusive Excellence Steering Committee and Diversity Committee.
  • Collaborate with Instruction as an advocate for inclusive pedagogy practices and for the development of courses and curricula that include equity and inclusion.

Develop meaningful relationships with external populations, including community leaders, civic and grassroots organizations, and federal, state, local and Tribal governments.
