Diversity, Equity, & Inclusivity
Happening Now at Feather River College
FRC is proud to not only celebrate Black History Month, but also use this important month to acknowledge our annual Book in Common. This year's Book in Common is "How to Be an Antiracist", by Ibram X. Kendi, and takes a close look at what could be called structural and social racism.
The book is being used in multiple courses at FRC, and is not only a major reading, but also a discussion topic and being utilized for various writing assignments.

Purpose & Commitment
Feather River College is committed to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusivity in all forms. The college embraces individual uniqueness, fosters a culture of inclusion, and supports the institutional benefits of diversity. As Golden Eagles, we rise above any form of social injustice and strive towards a welcoming and inclusive environment both on campus and in personal lives. FRC values inclusion as an essential element of our public service mission.
Monitors, plans, and implements college activities that promote and encourage knowledge, awareness and appreciation of cultural diversity on the campus and within the Plumas County community. Membership: Chief Student Services Officer (Chair); Director of Human Resources/EEO; Academic Senate Faculty (2); Classified Senate Representatives (2); Associated Students Representative (1).
The centerpiece of the Feather River College mission requires the removal of barriers to student success and the active pursuit of an equity-minded campus of trust, compassion, open-mindedness, and culture of inclusivity. We acknowledge the systemic barriers that have historically excluded and prevented success for students from diverse, disenfranchised, and vulnerable populations and are committed to addressing the inequities that contribute to their success.
FRC pledges to build an equity framework where the lived experiences of our most marginalized student groups inform our institutional practices and processes.
Acknowledging and eliminating equity gaps includes challenging explicit and implicit biases and perceptions. This will occur through self-reflection and at times, difficult conversations. Becoming equity-minded means all of us being more conscious and aware of the systemic barriers to student success, and creating a more inclusive and culturally affirming institution and learning environment. An equity-minded campus means equipping all FRC employees with the knowledge, skills and abilities to discuss the barriers on our campus that affect student success and student lives.
Our equity pledge is to celebrate diversity, instill hope, and empower our students to transform their lives and their communities.
