Vice President of Student Services Miguel Dueñas talked about Student Equity or SEAP 2.0. Dueñas explained how this new plan is more community-driven.
He said there is a difference between the first SEAP and the new and improved one.
Dueñas said the new program is transformational, fluid and dynamic.
He said it is race-conscious in an effort to inform other institutional plans.
The race-conscious design for the improved program is focused on the idea that all students matter.
