More about the Equity Council at PNCA:

The Equity Council provides a space for on-going dialogue and self-reflection about issues of equity and social justice at PNCA. The discussions that take place during these bi-weekly meetings (Mondays 12:30-1:30 in Bridgelab) will help keep our learning community accountable and guide more culturally responsive programming in the future.

The Equity Council is intended to be a place where students, faculty, and staff can:

  • Share experiences
  • Air grievances
  • Pose questions
  • Make suggestions
  • Shape the learning environment
  • Address issues of race, identity, class, sexuality, gender, ability, and difference in a space free of judgement
  • Discuss PNCA’s relationship to the Portland community and the world at large

As a grassroots committee, we encourage everyone to participate and contribute their critical perspective and creative energy. Please join us as regularly as possible. If, for whatever reason, you can’t make Equity Council please email to learn about other opportunities to get involved in our diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives as part of our Strategic Plan.
