Whereas, The Academic Senate for California Community Colleges’ (ASCCC) paper on developing student equity plans, Student Equity: Guidelines for Developing a Plan, was adopted in Fall 2002, and does not use the term “disenfranchised students” but addresses issues that affect students often deemed disenfranchised; and

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges revise the 2002 paper Student Equity: Guidelines for Developing a Plan and bring the revised paper to the Fall 2018 Plenary Session for discussion and possible adoption.
