Video 4: Introducing the Equity Institute at Queensborough

In Fall 2021, a team of twenty Queensborough colleagues began the Equity Institute, an eight-week learning experience designed by the University of Southern California's (USC) Race and Equity Center. Each week our colleagues attend two-hour virtual modules led by faculty from USC's national network of highly regarded scholars. In between sessions, participants meet in groups of five to discuss how what they are learning applies to Queensborough. At the end of the eight weeks, each group will develop an action plan to advance equity in one of four opportunity areas. We invite you to learn more about the Equity Institute in the video below.
