DEI Events

In an effort to best serve the students, staff, faculty, and visitors of the School of Education, we facilitate diversity programming regularly.

Connect with faculty, staff, and students from different units in a monthly forum to foster in-depth dialogue around where we are as a School and how we may practically approach and work towards our diversity, equity, and inclusion goals.

Teach Educate Act (TEA) talks are an on-going series sponsored by the Diversity Committee and the School of Education’s ODEI office to ensure that our students, faculty, and staff remain engaged in and continue to champion issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Provided interactive professional development workshops centering equity and inclusion, workshops centered pre-professionals.

Informal gatherings with rotating subgroups of faculty and staff through luncheons.

Gather with fellow students to take a load off, listen to music, and have some treats!
