Building Diversity and Equity
CEHD is a leader in providing research, teaching, learning, and engagement opportunities for students, faculty, and staff that reflect the changing demographics of the 21st century.
CEHD is committed to recruiting, enrolling, and educating a diverse population of students who represent the overall composition of our society.
Common Ground Consortium (CGC) supports advanced graduate work in education by students of culturally diverse backgrounds who are graduates of several Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
- TRiO Student Support Services targets 100 to 120 new students each fall to participate in a multidimensional program that provides comprehensive academic support, supplemental study groups, learning communities, and leadership development.
- College English Transitions is a first-year learning community for multi-lingual students.
- Upward Bound works with students on a long-term and intensive basis to help generate the skills needed for selected high school students to succeed in postsecondary education.
- The McNair Scholars Program prepares low-income, first-generation college students for graduate study.
The College of Education and Human Development, as well as the University as a whole, provides numerous scholarship opportunities directed specifically toward those with multicultural backgrounds.
CEHD has launched a college-wide initiative, CEHD Diversity and Equity: Re-imagine, Act, Communicate.
Shaped by the Office of Equity and Diversity 2008 report, the initiative consists of three work groups:
Each group has committed to actionable items that include reflection and evaluation.
