IDEA Committee

Serving ECTC Students

The Inclusivity, Diversity and Equity Advisory (IDEA) Committee assists with recruiting, retaining, and aiding in the graduation of underrepresented minority and low-income students. The committee creates community connections that support student success, campus-wide diversity education and community events. The IDEA Committee also assists with cultural events that increase student, faculty and staff cultural competency and create a welcoming and inclusive campus environment.  

The IDEA Committee’s three subcommittees — Opportunity, Success and Impact — respectively ensure that underrepresented minority and low-income students have opportunities and find success ECTC and that the IDEA Committee has a positive impact on campus and in the community by spreading inclusivity, diversity and equity.
