FOR INCLUSIVE EXCELLENCE
THE FABRIC OF THE COMMUNITY
Our Commitment and Values
The University of Wisconsin–Madison School of Education seeks to promote equity, diversity, and inclusion by reducing barriers to access; increasing the demographic diversity of our faculty, staff, and students; and encouraging scholarship, teaching, and service that embraces and engages the full measure of the diversity of our society. The School of Education recognizes that our desire to be an anti-racist, unbiased, and inclusive academic community is ongoing and involves shared commitment, responsibility, action, and accountability. We believe that diversity, equity, inclusion, and inclusive excellence, the four essential pillars of our approach to generating positive and lasting change, build upon our scholarship and the School’s reputation as a leading educational institution.

Humans have called this place home for 12,000 years and counting. Today, the University of Wisconsin–Madison rests in the ancestral land of the Ho-Chunk Nation, the People of the Big Voice, who have called this place Teejop (day-JOPE) for time immemorial. We as a university community continue to create and build upon our partnerships with the 12 First Nations of Wisconsin. We as a state university respect the inherent sovereignty and unique legal status, as affirmed and set forth in state and federal law, of the First Nations of Wisconsin.
