Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Welcome to EHD’s Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion!
The School of Education and Human Development’s Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (ODEI) was created and launched in August 2020 -- with the appointment of Dr. Robert Q. Berry, III (Samuel Braley Gray Professor of Mathematics Education) as Associate Dean for DEI. Serving on the Dean’s leadership team, Dr. Berry’s mandate is to lead the Office in improving the school’s efforts to address racism and other forms of social injustice, both internally and externally, creating and sustaining an inclusive and equitable school environment, and enhancing school-wide diversity, equity, and inclusion accountability, effectiveness, and collaboration. Dr. Catalina Piatt-Esguerra joined ODEI in January 2021, serving as the inaugural Programs Manager. Together, Dr. Berry and Dr. Piatt-Esguerra have rolled out a series of programs, initiatives, as well as student engagement and funding opportunities aligned with ODEI’s goals.
