Executive Summary
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
Founded in 1920, Hartnell College is one of the oldest educational institutions in California and
operates three campuses in the Salinas Valley: the Main Campus at 411 Central Avenue in
Salinas, which opened in 1936; the Alisal Campus (formerly East Campus) at 1752 E. Alisal
Street in Salinas; and the King City Education Center at 117 N. Second Street in King City,
located in southern Monterey County. The King City Center celebrated its ten-year anniversary
in 2012. The college also delivers on-site instruction at communities throughout its District.
The college’s nearly 10,000 students (7,100 FTES) are diverse, with Latino students accounting
for more than 60percent of enrollments, reflecting the greater community population. Many
students are the first in their family to attend college, and many speak Spanish as their primary
language. Hartnell has earned the federal designation as a Hispanic Serving Institution. In 2012,
the college was awarded two Title III HSI STEM and Articulation grants for the purpose of
improving student access and success for underrepresented groups in the STEM disciplines.
With more than half of the District’s population living below the poverty level of income, the
college provides an opportunity for making a significant social and economic impact on the
community and the lives of the individuals.
Hartnell College is committed to ensuring student equity throughout the programs and services
it offers, as is evidenced in Board Policy 5300:
The Board is committed to assuring student equity in educational programs and college
services. The CEO or designee shall establish and implement a student equity plan that
meets the Title 5 standards for such a plan.
This commitment is also portrayed in the College’s mission statement:
Focusing on the needs of the Salinas Valley, Hartnell College provides educational
opportunities for students to reach academic goals in an environment committed to
student learning, achievement and success.
In addition, Hartnell College has included ensuring equity across the college in its strategic
planning:
Hartnell College Student Equity Plan - 7
Strategic Priority 1—Student Access
Goal 1A: Hartnell College will provide higher education, workforce development, and lifelong
learning opportunities—with seamless pathways—to all of the college’s present and
prospective constituent individuals and groups.
Outcome 1A.6: Increase participation rates for historically underrepresented students
Outcome 1A.5: Provide an inviting, welcoming, and supportive campus atmosphere for
all student groups
Strategic Priority 2—Student Success
Goal 2A: Hartnell College will provide a supportive, innovative, and collaborative environment
to help students pursue and achieve educational success.
Outcome 2B.1: By academic year 2017-2018, Hartnell College will achieve
approximately equal success rates among all demographic groups for measures on the
California Community College Chancellor’s Office “Student Success Scorecard”
Strategic Priority 3—Employee Diversity and Development
Goal 3A: Hartnell College is committed to 1) increasing diversity among its employees; 2)
providing an environment that is safe for and inviting to diverse persons, groups, and
communities; and 3) becoming a model institution of higher education whose respect for
diversity is easily seen and is fully integrated throughout its policies, practices, facilities,
signage, curricula, and other reflections of life at the college.
Outcome 3A.1: During 2013-14, establish a Diversity Development Committee.
Outcome 3A.2: To help Hartnell College become an ever-more welcoming place for all
members of the campus community, by the end of the 2015—2016 academic year,
successfully establish Hartnell College as a place that embraces all underrepresented,
disenfranchised, and other protected persons and groups.
Hartnell College further supports the importance of equity by including it as one of the tenets
of its core values:
Diversity and Equity—We embrace and celebrate differences and uniqueness among all
students and employees. We welcome students and employees of all backgrounds.
Hartnell College began the development of the Student Equity Plan by inviting faculty,
management, staff, students, and community members to participate in the process; as a
result, the SEP Work Group includes participants from the above constituents, who have been
meeting regularly to discuss and analyze data and to develop the narrative, goals, activities,
outcomes, and budget for the plan. The chair of the group meets weekly with the SSSP/SEP
Hartnell College Student Equity Plan - 8
(Student Success and Support Program/Student Equity Plan) Steering Committee. Upon
completion of the plan, it is shared with the councils and committees that comprise the
College’s participative governance structure before being submitted to the Board of Trustees
and the Chancellor’s Office.
TARGET GROUPS
The SEP Work Group examined student equity success data by using the tools recommended in
the “Updated Student Equity Plan” document as well as local college tools. Data was discussed
and analyzed in the framework of the five student equity success indicators as identified by the
Board of Governors in 2001:
A.
B.
C.
D.
Access
Course Completion
ESL and Basic Skills Completion
Degree and Certificate Completion
E. Transfer
The underserved student groups shown in the table below were determined using the pointgap methodology presented in the Student Equity Plan template. The SEP Work Group, under
the guidance of one of the College’s research analysts, identified those groups in each of the
success indicators whose educational performance is indicative of disproportionate impact. The
Work Group discovered that there are several target groups who appear in multiple success
indicators and designed activities that can support these students using multiple approaches.

PLANNING COMMITTEE AND COLLABORATION
Participatory Governance
The Student Equity Work Group focused on building an equity plan through a transparent and
participatory governance process.
Collaborative planning efforts:
To integrate Student Equity planning into college and district wide planning efforts:
 Accreditation
 Educational master planning
 Program review
 SSSP Program Plan
 Basic Skills Plan
To adopt a holistic approach to planning, budgeting, and delivery of services to support equity
in student access and student success
To promote campus-wide awareness and delivery of equity through best-practices and datadriven programs and services
 The SSSP and SEP Steering Committee is composed of the Chairs of the SSSP and SEP
workgroups, the Vice President of Student Affairs, the Dean of Institutional Planning and
Effectiveness, the Director of HSI Initiatives, and the Director of Student Academic Support
 The Steering Committee supports the development and implementation of the plans and
helps to leverage resources to ensure completion by the required deadline
 The group collaborates to ensure consistencies among plans and to remove duplicated
activities and expenditures
 Responsible for planning, developing, implementing, and monitoring the Student Equity
Plan
 Includes an appropriate mix of administrators, faculty, classified staff, students, and
community members
 Includes participants who represent campus constituencies such as Financial Aid, Foster
Youth, Veteran’s, Disabled Student Services, and participants from other campus planning
efforts, such as the SSSP and BSI Action Plans
In the fall of 2015, the Equity Work Group expanded to include a broader representative group
to define activities for the plan. The Student Equity Work Group used a proposal form that was
designed in collaboration with the Student Success Committee and the SSSP/SEP Steering
Committee. During the fall semester, the funding request form was adapted further to clarify
how funding requests tie in to student equity and how each proposal relates to the campus
planning and goals in a scalable and measurable manner. A rubric was adapted to rank funding
requests moving forward that aligns with the goals of student equity. Funding requests for
future years will use both the new request form and the rubric in order to meet the funding
approval criteria set by the Student Equity Work Group. This model will also be proposed as the
Hartnell College Student Equity Plan - 14
model for other campus initiatives to use in order to promote alignment among the plans and
initiatives.
Review of Proposals, Rankings, and Funding Approval
During fall 2015, committee members reviewed academic literature on defining an equityoriented campus culture. The conversation about campus needs and equity best practices
resulted in proposals that could impact the college’s disproportionate impacts.

students, Latinos, Whites, males, and students with disabilities) across all district sites and promote the completion of the FAFSA, BOGW Fee
Waiver and/or Dream Act Applications.
According to the Resource Guide: Supporting Undocumented Youth provided by Department of Education, colleges should create open and
inviting environments; provide services and resources to help guide undocumented students; communicate and demonstrate support for
undocumented youth; provide peer-to-peer support and relationship-building opportunities; and build staff capacity and knowledge of relevant
issues. Addressing the issue of undocumented students. This documents reports that “the issue of college affordability has kept many from
pursuing and completing postsecondary education (4).” This activity supports the development of policies and procedures to assist
undocumented students in obtaining access to a college education.

 Activity Implementation Plan
Increase marketing of academic and student support services offered by Hartnell College to students who attend District high schools with
larger white populations (i.e., private/charter schools) and who traditionally attend four-year universities. Expand networks and coordinate
with high schools, adult schools, community-based, foster youth- and, veteran-serving organizations, and other disproportionately
disadvantaged groups to close the access gap. Increase foster youth enrollment in existing Hartnell College programs (EOPS, TRiO, ACE) and
services by increasing collaboration within the college and with area high schools and agencies and by improving on-campus marketing. Create
a data collection system to better identify foster youth, students with disabilities, low-income students, and veterans to increase support
services to these groups. Establish a task group to review policies for admission of undocumented Latino, foster youth, and male students to
Hartnell College.
Implementation:
 Hire a part-time Foster Youth Coordinator to develop and market services for foster youth
 Increase dedicated foster youth counseling by an additional 15 hours a week
 Identify district high schools who serve a larger white population and whose students primarily transfer to four-year universities (College
Pathways Coordinator)

 Activity Implementation Plan:
Establish a Student Academic Support System to provide academic support to foster youth, Native American, Latino, and African American to
improve successful course completion.
According to Basic Skills as a Foundation for Student Success in California Community Colleges (Poppy Copy),
The most common form of academic support or learning assistance occurs at the community college in the form of the lab or center
featuring a variety of services. Since most developmental students simultaneously enroll in transfer or occupational courses, learning
assistance programs are particularly important for the students’ ability to successfully move through their courses of study.
Since approximately 80 percent of the College’s students are developmental when beginning their coursework, Hartnell needs to create
academic support services as recommended in Instructional Effective Practice D.10 of the Poppy Copy, which states, “Programs provide
comprehensive academic support mechanisms, including the use of trained tutors.”

 Activity Implementation Plan:
Increase participation in the Math Academy for students with disabilities, Native Americans, females, and low-income students into Math
Academy to improve success and acceleration through math course sequences
Since 2011, Math Academy participants have shown significantly higher success rates in their subsequent math courses; for example, success in
MAT 123, Intermediate Algebra, has ranged from 15 to 29 percentage points higher than non-Math Academy participants. In MAT 201, PreAlgebra, Math Academy participants have demonstrated success at between 5 to 26 points higher than non-Math Academy students. However,
data show that results for success in MAT 121 have been lower for MAT 121 Math Academy students than for those not participating. This
trend is under investigation.
Implementation:
 Develop a marketing strategy including promotional materials for identified populations
 Work with counselors to offer priority registration for these populations within the Math Academy enrollment process
 Use multiple measures during Math Academy to support academic mobility toward math transfer

 Activity Implementation Plan:
Expand the Early Support Program (ESP; also known as Early Alert) pilot to broader implementation across Hartnell campuses
with online data gathering and reporting elements (to include more high-risk populations, such as veterans, foster youth,
disabled students, and first-generation students)
Hartnell College Student Equity Plan - 50
District:
Hartnell Community College District
College:
Hartnell College
According to Ensuring Equitable Access and Success: A Guide to Assessing & Mitigating Disproportionate Impact in Student
Success and Support Programs published by the Chancellor’s Office, “Programs like early alert or early warning require that
faculty and counselors work together as part of a structured and proactive process to identify and link students to tutoring and
any other needed supports (Lynch-Holmes, Troy & Ramos, 2012).” In addition, the early alert program must be delivered
effectively for it to improve retention by first identifying at-risk students and then by linking them to support services.
The College has been piloting its Early Support Program (ESP) with basic skills instructors with some success and is now
increasing the capacity of the program with the support of additional counselors funded by SSSP. Two embedded part-time
counselors initially supported with Title V and BSI funds collaborated with faculty to provide follow-up services to at-risk basic
skills students. A presentation of the Early Support Program is part of the Annual Student Success Conference scheduled for
January 2016 to educate faculty of the program and to expand its use.
Implementation:




Identify all basic skills faculty and provide training on use of the Early Support Program
Ensure that veterans, foster youth, and students with disabilities are aware of Early Support Services
Hire additional embedded basic skills counselors to connect with identified students
Develop marketing strategies to promote awareness of academic support services to faculty and students

 Activity Implementation Plan:
Strengthen transfer partnerships and programs at the community college level such as Title V-Gavilan, CSUMB RN BSN, EOPS,
TRiO, and with public colleges and university transfer programs at the California State University and University of California,
such as the Educational Opportunity Programs. Build the mentoring program to include transfer as a possibility. Visit universities
and provide students with the opportunity to get to know other campuses.
Implementation:
 Collaborate with the Director of Student Academic Support to create professional development activities (such as Faculty
Inquiry Groups) to determine and analyze the “barrier points” that prevent students with disabilities, American Indians, and
females from persisting through the levels of basic skills and ESL courses to transfer-level courses and to create “momentum
points” to help students in these groups to succeed
 Identify and collaborate with all Hartnell College student partnerships and pathways, such as bridge programs, the FosterKinship Independent Living Program, the Salinas Valley Adult Education Consortium, Migrant Region 16 to develop and align
pathways to Hartnell

 Activity Implementation Plan:
Increase participation in the Math Academy for students with disabilities, Native Americans, females, and low-income students
moving through the math sequence to transfer level.
Since 2011, Math Academy participants have shown significantly higher success rates in their subsequent math courses; for
example, success in MAT 123, Intermediate Algebra, has ranged from 15 to 29 percentage points higher than non-Math
Academy participants. In MAT 201, Pre-Algebra, Math Academy participants have demonstrated success at between 5 to 26
points higher than non-Math Academy students. However, data show that results for success in MAT 121 have been lower for
MAT 121 Math Academy students than for those not participating. This trend is under investigation.
Implementation:
 Develop a marketing strategy including promotional materials for identified populations

SUMMARY EVALUATION SCHEDULE AND PROCESS
The office of Institutional Effectiveness along with the Student Equity Work Group will work
jointly to track the activities planned throughout the year of funding. Evaluation will take place
on an ongoing basis, and each method will take place either annually or by semester, and
reporting back will coincide with each method’s timeline. The Equity Plan will administer the
following components in the evaluation process.
a. Longitudinal study: The success indicators: Access, Completion, ESL & Basic Skills,
Degrees/Certificates and Transfer will be monitored on an annual basis. The
measurements will be compared on a year to year basis using the Scorecard and internal
data.
b. Activity based: All of the activities will have evaluation methods defined for each
activity. Some activities will have pre and post evaluation to help in the process.
c. Summative Evaluation: Success indicator metrics will be compared to the data prior to
the current analyzed cohort and effectiveness will be determined. A summary report of
findings will be completed and presented.
d. Goals/Measurable Outcomes: Outcomes will be measured and compared against the
goals set forth by the plan. Activities that fail to make significant progress in reducing
the equity gap will be re-evaluated.
e. Self-evaluation component: Participating dependencies will self-evaluate on an ongoing
basis, and reporting back to the Student Equity Work Group will be required.
