As a School of Education committed to research and teaching that advocates equal educational opportunity for all students, we seek to foster an environment that welcomes and encourages discussion about issues of race, class, language, gender, culture, and disability. Furthermore, as our programs have a history of serving international graduate students, we are attuned to the power of educational conversations that often occur across national borders. Diversity is central to our work.
