The Office of Diversity and Inclusion leads Inclusive Excellence at Emerson College. Our primary goal is to ensure access and success for everyone at Emerson. We provide resources and support to faculty, staff, and students using Inclusive Excellence as the foundation for all other goals at Emerson. We believe Inclusive Excellence leads to academic excellence.
There are many dimensions of diversity that exist together and impact each other. Gender-identity can intersect with race, which can connect to social and economic class differences; spiritual belief can impact sexual orientation, and so on. At Emerson, diversity leads to inclusion when people are able to bring their full selves to work, study, learn, create, innovate, and engage with one another at the highest level of performance.
