Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Following the vision of Dean Watson, in all we do, we relentlessly foster a culture of innovation, diversity, equity, and inclusion. Every member of our team, from the Assistant Dean to our DEI Student Ambassadors, is committed to enhancing the sense of belonging for each student, faculty, staff, alumni, and visitor engaging with the School of Education.

Research & Resources

The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion implements ourresearch function by evaluating how School of Education communications, outreach, programming, and support servicesalign with our diversity mission. The results of our research will inform how we A) enhance our online and marketing materials, B) reach out to share our message and mission with the greater community, C) invite prospective educators and staffers to participate in our on-campus programs, and D) provide ongoing support for program participants through mentor sessions and diversity network luncheons. Moreover, DEI research will result in resources we may provide educators seeking to infuse diversity into lesson plans, equity into the curriculum, and inclusion into the services we provide.
