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.
We are revising our Complaint Process to ensure a more transparent and collaborative approach. The types of complaints include, but are not limited to:
- Academic concerns and faculty issues
- Staff concerns
- Discrimination, harassment, retaliation, violence and safety as addressed under state and federal law
- Violations of the LCAD Student Code of Conduct
NEXT STEPS: The expanded complaint process will include mediation services provided by an ombudsman/consultant specializing in conflict resolution. The Board of Trustees will be consulted during the review and establishment of policies that deal with complaints.
UPDATE: The Equity + Inclusion Council has been working with the Provost to create a student complaint process that is clear, easy to follow and addresses the different types of concerns that students might have. Student Government representatives have been consulted, as has the Black Students Union. As of this date, the document has gone through several reviews by the EIC, the faculty, and student groups. Version one is in the final stages of revision and will be updated as needed. This document can be found on the website and will be hyperlinked to a complaint form.
