Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Task Force Charge 

The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Task Force is charged with developing and promoting strategic recommendations to measurably advance social justice and antiracism throughout the School of Music. This work will spur and accelerate transformation in the areas of leadership, policy, culture, curriculum, pedagogy, and beyond. 

This urgent work takes place against a larger societal backdrop of injustice, hate, and violence against individuals with oppressed and marginalized identities. The Task Force undertakes it with accountability for the School’s role in perpetuating inequity and exclusion. It is guided, also, by awareness that the School has been a past leader in building community and mitigating inequities. Empowered to advise, evaluate progress, and hold the School accountable for its own commitments to fundamental change, the Task Force remains diligent to creating an equitable environment for all.
