Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
What: The capacity for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion prepares learners to engage in an intentional and continuous process of learning culturally affirming ways of being, interacting, and behaving that result in equitable living outcomes in both global and local communities. EDI encourages the development of empathy, respect, and understanding around differences and the tools to help bridge those differences. EDI prioritizes the critical awareness of historical and contemporary structural inequity and its causes; encourages the development of empathy, respect, and skills for communicating across differences (including but not limited to race, ethnicity, Indigeneity, gender, gender identity or expression, disability, body size, age, sexuality, social class, religion, linguistic background, and nationality); and develops tools in service of a diverse, equitable, and inclusive society.
Why: EDI enables students to work collaboratively, effectively, equitably, and respectfully with diverse groups. Students may better understand systemic oppression and advocate for a more equitable world by developing global and intercultural fluency.
