Plan of Action: 2020-2021
The Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee seeks to set a school-wide goal of a Whole School Transformation, which includes a plan of action to positively influence curriculum, dialogue and resources in the School of Education, with a particular focus on creating equitable and inclusive learning environments for students and working environments for faculty and staff.
The committee's action plan includes programming and training opportunities for faculty, staff, students and community members that respond specifically to the SOE Strategic Plan, Theme IV: Diversity Driving Excellence. The four goals of Theme IV:
- Remediate implicit bias within VCU SOE to build a diverse and inclusive community among faculty, staff, students and community partners.
- Increase the number of historically underrepresented minority faculty in VCU SOE.
- Increase the number of historically underrepresented minority students in VCU SOE.
- Produce graduates who are prepared for success and impact in schools and communities serving historically marginalized individuals.
