Austin Community College creates 'Equity Report Card' for faculty, staff

Austin Community College created a comprehensive “Equity Report Card” for faculty and staff to self-assess how inclusive they are after several internal surveys indicated the school "continues to struggle" supporting minority students.

ACC’s Office of Equity and Inclusion developed the report card with the goal of “equity-mindedness,” which “requires that practitioners are race-conscious and aware of the historical and social context of exclusionary practices in American higher education.”

Dr. Molly Beth Malcolm, ACC Executive Vice President of Campus Operations and Public Affairs, told Fox News in an email that the school is trying to "improve outcomes."

“We recognize that many community college students are the first in their family to attend college,” Malcom wrote. “ACC created the Office of Equity and Inclusion which developed the report card to look at programs and services in an effort to improve outcomes for all students.”
