ACC Students Participate in Equity Survey

This survey will provide information about undergraduate students’ opinions of institutional commitment to equity and inclusion, the extent to which they interact meaningfully with diverse others, where and what they learn about race and their feelings of readiness for citizenship in a racially diverse democracy, and other important topics.

The Houston Guided Pathways to Success (GPS) Equity Initiative through a grant from the Houston Endowment provided the funds for the survey drawing prizes.

“ACC is excited to be a part of the Houston GPS Equity Initiative as it will provide the college with additional tools to continue to grow its commitment to diversity and inclusion,” said Dr. Jessica Ranero-Ramirez, ACC director of College and Career Pathways. “Participation in the National Assessment of Collegiate Campus Climates is a critical tool to ensure that ACC student voices are heard as we continue the necessary work around campus racial climate.”

Participating institutions will receive a customized report that includes results and practical recommendations. The survey was developed by the University of Southern California Race and Equity Center.

Seven students received prizes from the drawing.

Winners were Simone Mays, who received a laptop, Daisy Rodriguez received a $100 gift card and Madison Jackson received a $100 gift card. Students who won $25 gift cards were Charlie Flores-Ramirez, Madison Christensen, Brian Blystone and Kelly Harris.
