Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

In GSEHD we are working to foster an inclusive community of scholars and citizens who serve diverse communities. We believe we are stronger and more successful when we engage our individual, group, and social differences in the pursuit of equity and excellence for all.

We are committed to the important work of diversity, equity, and inclusion, and we will be adding more content to this website about our ongoing work.
