What We Do

We engage in policy, initiatives, programming, funding opportunities and professional development aligned with the diversity and equity goals of the school.

The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (ODEI) was created and launched in August 2020. ODEI leads 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.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

The School of Education and Human Development values diversity, equity and inclusion in all of its complexity and richness. We engage our students with multiple perspectives to prepare them to be active agents of change in a complex global society. We intentionally seek opportunities to expand diversity at our school through recruitment, retention, teaching, research, and service. Our goal is the development of a community that promotes and values diversity and equity.
