Challenging the Status Quo

Discrimination and inequities in our society have unjustly impacted communities of color and people of varied sexualities, gender identities, religions, ability, body size, and many other intersectional identities. Because of this, historically underserved populations have not had equal opportunity for educational success. Chico State has made equity, diversity, and inclusion our top strategic priority to challenge and change that status quo on our campus and in society.

Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
