Overview

The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion was developed in response to voices of College of Education faculty, staff, students, and alumni who asked for increased support in attending to multicultural and social justice issues. The guiding principle of the 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, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, disability, class, first-generation students, family-building, and other salient identities and experiences for students, faculty, staff, and alumni of the College of Education.
