Diversity, equity and inclusion across our multiple social identities benefit our entire community.

When we work and learn with people who are different from us, we are more likely to solve problems creatively, enhance our critical thinking skills, and develop our strengths as teachers and as learners. Because Brandeis’ history and institutional goals are rooted in the pursuit of social justice, we include this value in all that we do.
