“Gallaudet’s unique niche in the world requires us to actively work toward creating a sense of belonging for all members to support transformation and a robust future.”
The primary goal of Priority Two, “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusive Excellence: Creating a Thriving Community,” of Gallaudet University’s strategic plan is to “address the most critical issues and needs to ensure Gallaudet continues to build a campus climate in which every member of the university community supports each other in feeling welcomed, included, and valued for their unique qualities and individual contributions.”
The Division of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion leads the visioning and implementation of Gallaudet University’s quest for inclusive excellence. Through compassionate listening and intentional cross-campus collaboration, we strive to transform relationships and policies to shape the Gallaudet University of the future. We will achieve our mission by implementing our six-pillar framework of inclusive excellence:
The Division of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion will be Gallaudet University’s leading force in building bridges of caring, critical social consciousness and elevating all community members’ sense of living, well-being and belonging.
Inclusive Excellence begins with an understanding that Gallaudet is a bilingual, diverse, and multicultural community. To create a vibrant community that supports everyone’s well-being and success, we must understand and value our differences as well as our commonalities. The following core values make up EDI’s Principles of Community:
