Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: A Position Statement for Colleges of Education

Without question, there remains an urgent need for institutions of higher education in the United States to take a proactive stance with regard to diversity, equity, and inclusion. This country and its many institutions have a devastating history with respect to racial oppression, religious persecution, discrimination, and systemic violence. Thus, schools and colleges of education, in particular, must take a critical, public stance against racism and in support of equitable, inclusive, anti-racist educational practices and spaces.


I invite you to read, “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: A Position Statement for Colleges of Education,” share it with your networks, and visit our Facebook page (EHE Office of Diversity, Inclusion & Community Engagement: OSU) to post specific action schools/colleges of education must take to truly engage in this important work. Read the statement and use this link to add your name, organization, and email to show support for it.


All my best,
