Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at the Mary Frances Early College of Education (MFE COE) was developed in response to voices of our college faculty, staff, students, and alumni who expressed increased areas of support around multicultural and social justice issues. The guiding principle of our DEI office is “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Action.”

Within our office, multicultural and social justice efforts are broadly defined, attending to issues of race/ethnicity, national origin, immigration status, gender expression and sexual orientation, neurodiversity, disability, socio-economic status, first-generation students, family-building, and other salient identities and experiences for students, faculty, staff, and alumni of the College of Education.
