Diversity and Social Justice
We affirm the contributions of all people in our community. Diversity, social justice, and equity are at the core of our mission in the the Department of Curriculum and Instruction.
We explicitly reject bias, discrimination, and exclusion on the basis of race, color, creed, religion, national origin, gender, age, marital status, disability, public assistance status, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.
We all are responsible for recognizing, confronting, and addressing bias and discrimination and diligently working for positive change in support of equity, social justice, and diversity.
We are committed to creating opportunities for students of color and aspiring teachers of color in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction. We offer strongly supported mentorship and we offer funding whenever possible.
To find out more about opportunities for students of color, visit the Teachers Scholars of Color program, ask us about scholarships for students of color, or come to one of our "Diversity Dialogues", monthly discussions featuring an issue that addressed diversity and social justice in the classroom, regularly updated on our Facebook page.
