Inclusion, Access, Success Committee


The Inclusion, Access, and Success (IAS) Committee is charged with promoting awareness and sensitivity to the issues of culture, human rights, gender, age, and other differences in every PACAC initiative. It is our goal to create community by infusing the value of respect, education, communication, access, equity and inclusiveness in each PACAC undertaking.

IAS has sponsored the Camp College for six years now.  In 2020, we held our first ever Virtual Camp College.  We hope to bring the event back to a college campus on the western side of the state and on the eastern side of the state next year.  This series of workshops is to help students get a "jump start" on the elements of the colleges’ research and application process. 

There has an IAS working group focused on addressing concerns specific to college bound students who are undocumented. The main initiatives include preparing PACAC sessions and webinars to create awareness among PACAC members and member institutions of current legislation and campus climate regarding DACA/Undocumented student concerns, surveying PACAC members and member institutions regarding their familiarity with the unique needs of those affected by DACA, and creating a useful resource list of member colleges with published admission policies for DACA/Undocumented students.
