Committee on Diversity and Inclusion Mission

The Committee on Diversity and Inclusion works to develop and sustain a diverse and welcoming community of learning. It provides education and training on diversity and inclusion; proposes policies and supports practices that foster respect, equity, restorative justice, and dignity for every person. The committee creates spaces for multiple ideas, frameworks, and perspectives to facilitate innovative solutions to oppression, prejudices, and biases. It encourages the critique of dominant narratives and works to develop a campus culture that listens to and learns from counter-narratives. The committee’s work supports pedagogy, policies and practices that build empathy, develop social justice change agents, and strengthen EMU’s commitment to prepare students, faculty and staff to think, serve, and lead in a global context.
