Tackling Racial Inequities with the College of Education and Human Ecology
In the College of Education and Human Ecology (EHE), we embody our WHY. With more than 100,000 alumni and friends, our WHY is grounded in our people, renowned programs and breadth of perspectives in the areas of diversity, inclusion and social justice. We are serious in our mission to promote culture, climate, policies and practices that honor and support the rich diversities of excellence, intellect and talent in our college and the larger community.
Our efforts are pervasive in scope; structural in policies and practices, sustainable in longevity; coherent in ease of understanding, congruent with our mission of justice; and collaborative with our campus and community.
Our mission includes an imperative for inclusion and impact. This requires creating a community where all belong and thrive—one that improves the material and life chances and success of those we serve. At EHE, we are taking bold steps to dismantle barriers to these life chances and success such as racism, violence, bias, harassment and discrimination.
There is no better time than this present moment to join EHE as we live our WHY.
