PCC Equity and 访问 Statement

皮马社区学院 strives to empower every learner, every day, for every goal. Embedded within that mission statement is a commitment to 股本, equitable practice, and access.

Equity is different from equality. Equality is understood as the proportional distribution or parity of desirable outcomes across groups; while, 股本 refers to fairness and justice in the outcomes and processes. Whereas equality means providing the same to all, 股本 means recognizing that we do not all start from the same place and must acknowledge and make adjustments to imbalances. 这个过程正在进行中, requiring us to identify and overcome intentional and unintentional barriers arising from bias or systemic structures.

访问 to education is done by committing resources to services, 项目, and behaviors that support the opportunity for all 学生. Allocation to groups is not taking away or creating special status to some areas but is driven by equitable practice to ensure that what is needed to remove the barriers to access is achieved. The College is committed to monitoring, 使用数据, and ensuring that resource allocation is adjusted to meet the ongoing access changes in the community using the principles of 股本.

皮马社区学院 is committed through its inclusive transformation to emphasize 股本 in all aspects of its work with 学生, 员工, 和社区. 的AACU, American Association of Colleges and Universities, (2015) highlights specific actions to work toward 股本-minded outcomes for 学生.

代词 are important because they allow us to communicate professionally and accurately, they allow us to recognize cultural and individual identifiers, and are an important part of 性别认同 and how we show 尊重 for those identities. People may refer to traditional American English approaches to 代词, 但不是所有的学生, 工作人员, nor community members solely identify with that approach. In order to promote 尊重 for both individual and cultural identity, it is important for us to use an individual's correct corresponding 代词. We cannot rely solely on names, how we may perceive their 性别, nor the assumptions of others. The only way to know is to ask others, and for us to inform others, of our 代词.

如前所述 代词.Org, traditionally American English male 代词 are he/him/his, traditionally American English female 代词 are she/her/hers. Traditional American English also uses But there are other options for 代词 that people may prefer when the traditional 代词 don’t feel right. These are known as 性别 neutral or 性别 inclusive 代词. Gender inclusive 代词 can seem awkward or unfamiliar and it can be challenging at times to recall a preferred pronoun. That is why it is important to include pronoun identifiers in various types of communication. The more it is used, the more comfortable it becomes.

代词用法很重要, it confirms that you 尊重 the individual, 他们的文化, 以及他们的身份. 它促进包容, 支持归属感, and creates more equitable spaces for 学生 and 员工 to work and learn.

Tips for Employees and Students
