DIVERSITY & EQUITY STATEMENT

The LMU School of Education (SOE) is a learning community committed to social justice, equity, inclusion, and diversity. Our commitment to social justice has two principal sources: (a) Our institutional grounding in the Jesuit, Marymount, and Catholic traditions, and (b) Our tradition in critical education. 

02

These sources together encourage us to ensure that future teachers, counselors, leaders, and others working in education are equipped to facilitate justice in their schools, communities, and organizations.  To foster such conditions, the SOE established the Diversity Action Committee (DAC) as a standing committee to collaboratively lead, design and coordinate equity, inclusion, and diversity-related processes and programs for the School of Education that are consistent with the values expressed in our Conceptual Framework.  The key goals are to foster a stronger understanding of social inequities and historical forces of oppression, to investigate systemic forms of racism and oppression, to reduce institutional barriers for people of color and other marginalized groups, and to foster an inclusive culture in which all faculty, staff, and students can reach their full potential.
