About the Belonging Education & Support Team (BEST)

The Belonging Education & Support Team (BEST) leads the campus efforts to reduce experiences of bias and promote a civil, respectful, and inclusive community that opposes any act of racism, religious intolerance, sexism, ageism, ableism, trans- and homophobia, or other forms of intolerance.

BEST is here to serve create an inclusive space of belonging and support by serving as a conduit for reporting, gathering information, and making recommendations for addressing incidents of bias on the Sac State campus.

BEST empowers the entire Hornet community (faculty, students & staff) to work toward becoming a more inclusive campus by reporting any perceived acts of bias incidents that witness or experienced.

Belonging + Bridging Program

The Belonging + Bridging Program is a unique opportunity to grow, learn, and work collaboratively across identity-based community groups to end oppression.

Members of the Hornet community who identify as Black/African American, White/European American/Jewish, and Hispanic/Latinx are invited to join the inaugural Belonging + Bridging communities program.

Participants in this 6-week innovative program work to understand the complexities of identity, and come together with other communities in a bridging space to explore working together across difference.

The program is not accepting applicants at this time, but check back in the fall semester for the next session.
