An Overview of the Equity Toolkit:

The tools here are intended to provide a view into equity and ways of understanding equity mindedness, particularly as they relate to teaching and learning. They are a sample offering of resources and tools developed from a variety of institutions and practitioners focused on equity work, including that of TCC faculty and staff.
