GGSE Diversity and Equity

The Gevirtz Graduate School of Education, in the pursuit of academic excellence, is committed to recruiting, supporting, and retaining a community of students, faculty, and staff that reflects the diversity of our state and nation. The faculty, staff, and students of the GGSE recognize and respect the dignity and worth of all people. We value individual differences including, but not limited to, racial and ethnic backgrounds, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, disability, religion, socioeconomic status, age, and divergent perspectives. Our goal is to create a diverse community where all members feel safe and included. We welcome discussion of complex issues related to diversity and equity inside and outside the classroom. We are committed to providing all members of the GGSE community multiple opportunities for their voices to be heard. We believe a dedication to these principles of inclusion is essential to our scholarship, leadership, citizenship, and democracy.
