Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

As scholars and teachers, we in the liberal arts and sciences are uniquely positioned to examine the causes and effects of racism, homophobia and other injustices, and to offer solutions. Yet we must not remain dispassionately at arm’s length from these issues. In the best Drexel tradition, we are called to engage with them directly, to amplify the voices of the marginalized, to call out the wrongs, and to do everything in our power to advance diversity, equity and inclusion in all of its forms.

The College has taken numerous concrete steps in response. The charge of the Faculty Council, a conduit between the College of Arts and Sciences (CoAS) faculty and its leadership, is to focus on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) issues. Each of our 13 academic departments and affiliated centers has established diversity councils and/or committees.

Taking Action: Research, Academics and Community

We invite you to explore the many stories that demonstrate the impact of the College of Arts and Sciences' efforts to promote diversity, equity and inclusion through faculty research, coursework, community engagement and more.
