Located at American River College's Community and Diversity Center, U.N.I.T.E. creates collective spaces in which student, staff, faculty, and administrators share lived realities, stories, and histories as equity education for the campus community. Additionally, U.N.I.T.E. provides a welcoming and inclusive environment that engages in brave dialogue about diversity, social justice, and equity. We offer support, advocacy, and leadership opportunities for and about disproportionately impacted communities.

All programs for U.N.I.T.E.  focus on critical consciousness and analytical thought, social justice education within the community, student equity, seamless educational pathways, and cultural empowerment and enrichment for the ARC community.

A major focus of U.N.I.T.E. is to promote a better understanding and awareness of the everyday student experience through collaborative partnerships across the campus community.

CADC Mission

The Community and Diversity Center will assure ARC students, staff, and faculty have, and use, the resources necessary to make ARC:

  • A center of cross-cultural understanding, awareness, and responsiveness;
  • A center of acceptance of diversity and inclusion that understands the social inequalities in our society that has created historically under-represented, marginalized and targeted groups; and
  • A center of open, responsible, and respectful dialogue and exchange of ideas.
