Equity Council

CNM’s Equity Council ensures racial equity strategies for the College while recognizing overlapping social identities, such as gender, sexuality, and class.

We define equity in our community as "all people in Albuquerque are economically secure, healthy and thriving in engaged and honored communities."

Equity Council stands with our Asian, Asian-American, and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) communities. We support the call to #StopAsianHate. Please read the Equity Council's latest statement (3/18/21).

About the CNM Equity Council

The Equity Council:

  • identifies racial equity strategies for adoption by the College;
  • serves as an accountability partner for College stakeholders who are responsible for adoption and implementation of racial equity strategies;
  • advocates College stakeholders’ practices, policies, and strategies that support diversity, inclusion, and equity for employees and students at CNM; and
  • ensures people of color across the College are meaningfully included in the decision-making and analysis of any racial equity strategies adopted by the College.
