Diversity, Equity, and Inclusiveness in Academic Affairs

  • About

    The College articulates a commitment to diversity and intercultural understanding. This office integrates the concepts and practices of “equity” and “inclusiveness” into this commitment because we recognize this work is multilayered and dynamic in the context of social conditions. The work is collaborative involving many facets of the college; it emphasizes cultivating the conditions for all to thrive while at the same time recognizing social determinants of educational outcomes in a global context and with temporal depth; and it means practicing accountability and reflexivity that includes mindfulness, kindness, and interconnectedness.

    Our work is guided by asset-based, intersectional, and social ecological approaches to academic excellence.  As part of our efforts at Pitzer and across the Consortium, we support inclusive practices in the recruitment, hiring, and retention of a diverse and talented faculty; collaborate with many campus and consortial partners on events, programs, workshops, and trainings; and work on policy and practices as they relate to diversity, equity, and inclusiveness in academic affairs.

    Stop by our offices in Scott Hall, call us or send us an email to get to know us and let us know how we may be of assistance to you towards our collective project of academic excellence. We look forward to working and collaborating with you.
