We strive to cultivate a safe and supportive environment that celebrates the diverse, unique and multifaceted group of students and faculty in our department. We actively work to understand the complex and rich identities of self and those around us, and lean into difficult conversations related to equity, diversity and inclusion. We envision a department and university where equity, diversity and inclusion are recognized as core values that drive the development of all policies and practices. We believe in creating learning environments where hate, discrimination and microaggressions are not tolerated.
According to Merriam-Webster:
justice according to natural law or rights specifically : freedom from bias or favoritism
the inclusion of different types of people (such as people of different races or cultures) in a group or organization programs intended to promote diversity in schools
The Equity, Diversity and Inclusion committee has set up an annonymous submission link in an effort to allow students, staff, and faculty to share comments and questions about these issues. The committee will do our best to address your concerns and answer your questions.
Additionally, If you have any ideas for events or topics you would like us to include in the EDI Newsletter submit them via the same link.
None are currently scheduled. Check back here for dates as they are programed.
