Equity + Inclusion Initiatives, Programs and Resources

Welcome to LCAD’s Equity + Inclusion page. Here, you can find a list of the current programs and initiatives that our school is putting in place to further develop a culture of equity and inclusion so that every member of the LCAD community can learn, work, live and play in a safe, supportive environment. Click on each initiative below to learn more.

The LCAD Board of Trustees serves as the College’s governing board. Trustees are volunteers dedicated to the long-term success and financial health of the College. The LCAD Board of Trustees is actively recruiting members from under-represented populations.

NEXT STEPS: The Equity + Inclusion Council is in the process of recommending educational and training resources for the Board.

UPDATE: In October, the Board of Trustees welcomed Lasana Hotep, founding Executive Director of the Equity Institute who also serves as the Director of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB) at the University of California, Berkeley. He led them through a vibrant, interactive session on the topic of unconscious racial bias and on ways to address lack of equity in higher education.
