Equity and Diversity


The educators we remember, the ones who most impacted our lives, are ones who saw us for who we are and who we would become. Such educators empathized, cared and understood. They recognized the systems which posed hurdles for future possibility. At UNCG’s School of Education, we prepare educators to critically engage a justice-centered practice and advocate for each of their students and families.

Our faculty and staff collaborate to provide greater access to a multitude of resources and experiences. Students have a carefully knit network of support as they hone their professional skills and can rely on a team invested in their success.

As a School of Education, we value and promote a diverse community, one which together builds equitable and sustainable environments where all can find a sense of belonging. We are equally committed to critically examining what this means as we shift infrastructure to meet these goals and understand the needs of students, staff and faculty in the complexity of our local, regional, national and transnational contexts.
