Equity Center 

You can grow from here.

Welcome to the Equity Center at Mt. San Antonio College!  We aim to create an inclusive space where students can thrive and aim for success.  We are the home to four programs: Arise, Dream, First Peoples Native Center, and Reach/Guardian Scholars.

      Through the efforts of Native students, faculty, and administrators, the First Peoples Native Center (FPNC) was created in order to raise awareness of the contributions and continued presence of Native American and Indigenous peoples of the region. The FPNC works to serve our diverse Native and Indigenous student populations by preparing them to become lifelong learners, providing access to support services to increase retention and successful transition rates, creating traditional and culturally relevant programming, and guide students to career paths that will enable them to enrich their lives and the lives of their communities.
