De Anza College has long been committed to student equity and success. The Student Success and Support Program-Student Equity Advisory Committee works to implement these two state mandates at the college.
In 2013, the Chancellor’s Office convened a Student Equity Workgroup to review and update the student equity planning process, ensuring that each college identifies strategies to address and monitor equity issues as well as to mitigate disproportionate impact on student access and achievement. Student equity planning focuses on increasing access, course completion, ESL and basic skills completion, degrees, certificates and transfer for all students as measured by success indicators linked to the CCC Student Success Scorecard.
The Student Success Act of 2012 (SB 1456), now known as the Student Success and Support Program (SSSP), is the first step to begin implementation of Student Success Task Force recommendations. This bill provides a policy framework that targets funding to the core matriculation services of orientation, assessment, counseling and advising, and development of education plans. The bill re-names the Matriculation program as the Student Success and Support Program. Implementation began in fall 2014.
