Long Beach City College provides a safe environment that supports learning and encourages all students to pursue their goals and successfully achieve them. This means the College does not tolerate sex-based discrimination – including sexual harassment and violence – and is committed to empowering all students and employees to take actions to eliminate sex discrimination on campus and to know how to get help if sex-based discrimination occurs. The College has a Title IX team that is prepared and ready to help!
In 2007, the Staff Diversity Task Force, comprised of the various constituencies on campus inclusive of faculty, classified, and administration was formed to address the issues of workforce equity. Now known as the Faculty and Staff Diversity Committee, it continues to work diligently to assess institutional policies and practices which have created barriers to diverse hiring.
