The Department of 学生权益 advocates for communities who the collegiate system was not originally designed to serve or who have not historically been centered. We work to create and support new and existing resources that cultivate inclusion, diversity, and equity at MiraCosta by fostering student leadership, collaborating with campus partners, and raising awareness of the unique experiences of the diverse populations 我们所服务.
