Equity & Inclusion Education


Equity & Inclusion Education focuses on the following competencies:

  • Valuing Diversity. Accepting and respecting differences—different cultural backgrounds and customs, different ways of communicating, and different traditions and values.
  • Being Culturally Self-Aware. Culture—the sum total of an individual's experiences, knowledge, skills, beliefs, values, and interests—shapes educators' sense of who they are and where they fit in their family, school, community, and society.
  • Dynamics of Difference. Understanding the nuances of cross-cultural communication and how to respond in these situations.


Diversity Education is a broad component supported by all areas of Student Activities & Leadership Development.  Learn about ways to connect:
