President Bob Knight and the Office of Diversity and Equity hosted a public forum to discuss the college’s Social Equity Plan on Wednesday in Gaiser Hall, which aims to make Clark more accessible to disadvantaged groups.
“This plan will be embedded in everything that we do,” said Knight, as he opened up the evening’s discussion.
Faculty and staff are now required to go through training on social inequity. Faculty in minority groups are being recruited from as far away as Oakland, California in an effort to make Clark more diverse.
Multicultural Retention Manager Felis Peralta said that “students have a stronger sense of belonging when they see themselves in the curricula.”
