Office of Access, Equity, and Diversity

One of the three overarching goals of the Oakton Community College strategic plan, Connecting What Matters, is an emphasis on “Connected Communities.” The College has also made a commitment to invest in anti-bias strategies with programs, services, and curricula to make Oakton a more inclusive institution for students and employees. This office partners with faculty, staff, and students to fulfill the access and equity goals and mission of the College.

The OAED does this by creating an open and accepting climate, using research and assessment to inform our practice, supporting the retention and success of our students, and being a transparent steward of the College’s assets and stakeholder interests. The primary areas through which we serve include:
