Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

In an effort to reduce barriers to access, enhance the demographic diversity of our faculty, staff, and students, and encourage scholarship that embraces and engages the full measure of the diversity of our society, the Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion facilitates inclusive excellence that builds upon our scholarship and our reputation as an excellent educational institution.

In light of COVID-19, the Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion has compiled a list of resources for Asian and Asian-American students, scholars, and staff. This list of resources also includes information on allyship for members of the School of Education community who are not Asian or Asian-American and still wish to support our Asian and Asian-American colleagues and friends.
