What is Equity? 

 Removing barriers, providing resources, and creating opportunities that ensure all students are engaged and represented in order to foster educational success and well-being.  Equity must focus on marginalized and historically underrepresented populations such as, but not limited to, racial and ethnic minorities, low-income students, students of differing gender identities or sexual orientation, and students with disabilities.
