Palomar College Learning For Success

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI)

Building an Antiracist Culture at Palomar College

Sociology Department Offers Another Powerful Voice of Solidarity!

The Sociology discipline of Palomar College stands in solidarity with our Black students and colleagues.

Sociology offers a critical lens through which we analyze and shine a light on forms of inequality and oppression within the Black community and all communities of color widely. We see our role as professors as providing an opportunity to engage students in an understanding of social forces that create and reproduce inequality, discrimination, and marginalization.

We commit to teaching, learning and offering programming about dismantling racism and to connect our scholarship with activism.   Through our engagement in curriculum development, professional development, public presentations, and service learning, we seek to make visible the experiences and perspectives of our Black, Native American, Hispanic/Latinx, Asian, and Pacific Islander students.
