The VCU School of Education is committed to creating a welcoming and inclusive environment for everyone, and that’s why we teach our students to do the same in their own work environments. Inclusion is a core value for our School, and we are invested in creating accountability and learning opportunities to ensure our efforts are sustainable and community-engaged. We also celebrate diverse ways in which our faculty, staff and students demonstrate their commitment to inclusion and equity throughout the state of Virginia and beyond.

  • We updated course evaluations to include questions that assess the inclusion of social justice, diversity and equity topics throughout our undergraduate and graduate courses.
  • SOE received a Diversity Index rating of 4.00/5.00 from the VCU Organizational Culture and Climate Survey.
  • 37% of SOE graduates who teach in a public school work at a Title I school.
