We stand in support of making our society more inclusive, just, and equitable for all individuals. We stand against individual and systemic racism in all its various forms.
We must all share in the responsibility to support equity, diversity, and inclusivity in our department, college, and university with the goal to eradicate racism in all forms. EDPS faculty and staff are examining thoughts, attitudes, biases, beliefs, and behaviors in teaching, research, service, and departmental policies/practices. This reflective examination is part of a larger goal to address the ways our department can promote greater inclusivity for all its members: students, staff, and faculty. As part of this process, we will solicit feedback from students, colleagues, and stakeholders in order to broaden our perspectives, engage a range of voices, and improve our practices.
