Equity Statement

Our Commitment to Equity

Education should belong to everyone. To nourish this inclusion, FLC champions equity, diversity, social justice, and environmental sustainability as foundational to academic, campus, and community life. We work with the communities we serve toward just and fair inclusion into society in which all people can participate, prosper, and reach their full potential. We commit to equity driven decision-making, planning, and reflective processes that are responsive to the diverse identities and experiences in our community.

We seek to empower marginalized voices, nurture our many identities and social circumstances, foster cultural responsiveness, and stand against all manifestations of discrimination, including (but not limited to) those based on: ability or disability, age, pregnancy or reproductive status, body type or size, physical or mental health status, neurodiversity, ancestry, ethnicity, citizenship or immigration status, language, race or racial identity, national origin, economic status, incarceration experience, educational status, employment status, food or housing insecurity, military or veteran status, marital or partner status, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sex, sexual orientation, political affiliation, and/or religion.
