Your identities and experiences matter to us. You have unique ideas, contributions, and artistic creations that we would love to integrate into events at IVC. The President’s Advisory Council on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility (PAC DEIA) Equity Event Workgroup is actively seeking IVC students, staff, faculty, and administrators that would like to contribute to the cultural and identity-affirming events we offer.
The Office of Student Equity offers support to disproportionately impacted communities of students in order to help promote success for every student at Irvine Valley College. We recognize that some students face more barriers to success than others and that these barriers are often built through unequal access to power and privilege. The purpose of this office is to both address these barriers to success as well as offering tailored support specific to the needs of each impacted student community. Our current programs include support for LGBQTIA+ students, Dreamers and undocumented students, current and former foster youth, students aged 25 years and older, students of color, and those facing food and housing insecurity. Additionally, Irvine Valley College is a federally recognized Minority Serving Institution (MSI) and the Office of Student Equity supports this service by running multicultural programming and events on campus as well as virtually.
