In order to graduate with a Bachelor of Arts degree, students are expected to fulfill the educational objectives of Pitzer College. These include intercultural understanding (global and local), social justice theory, and social responsibility praxis.
To foster these educational objectives, we integrate the concepts of “equity” and “inclusiveness” into our work in academic affairs. We frame our diversity work with an assets-based, intersectional, and social ecological approach. This means collaborating with all facets of the college; it means cultivating the conditions for all to thrive while at the same time mediating social determinants of educational outcomes; and it means accountability and action while practicing mindfulness, compassion, and interconnectedness.
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; we collaborate with many campus and consortial partners on events, programs, workshops, and trainings; and we work on policy and practices as they relate to diversity, equity, and inclusiveness in academic affairs.
Stop by Academic Affairs 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 as we collectively work towards academic excellence. We look forward to collaborating with you.
