The primary mission of the office of Diversity and College Access (DCA) is to improve the retention and graduation rates for underrepresented students by promoting their academic and personal growth. DCA assists in the personal development of African-American, Asian American and Pacific Islander, Latina/Latino/Latinx, Native American, and LGBTQ+ students. DCA supports student learning both in and out of the classroom setting. Diversity and College Access also supports pre-college programs for low-income, first generation, and academically at-risk high school students.
