Kremen School of Education and Human Development

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Throughout the 2020-2021 academic year, students, faculty, teachers, administrators and community members were supported by Kremen faculty leaders through the facilitation of professional learning and healing spaces focused specifically on anti-racism, anti-violence in communities of color, and trauma-informed care in school and work settings.  

Students are challenged and equipped to explore their own passions and potential to see what real difference they can make in the community or in the world. 

80% of recent Fresno State graduates remain in the Central Valley to become the next generation of leaders. 

Fresno State provides a powerful learning ground built out of the opportunities created by the diversity of its regions and students. The most unique student needs can be met by putting equity and innovation in action, graduating students with a skill set that’s current and relevant to meeting the needs of others in an increasingly diverse world.

The Central Valley and its people will be most successful when solutions come with inclusiveness, and openness is championed. 

 

“… Bold is an attitude that moves ideas, opportunities and people beyond convention, obstacles and naysayers, to success. Being bold inspires leaders and transformation because it tests limits and possibilities in a positive, results-oriented way that is focused on the greater good for our community.” 

Diversity

Diversity

Diversity is the presence of differences that may include race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, nationality, socioeconomic status, language, (dis)ability, age, religious commitment or political perspective. Populations that have been-and remain- underrepresented among practitioners in the field and marginalized in the broader society.*

Equity

Equity

Equity is promoting justice, impartiality, and fairness within the procedures, processes, and distribution of resources by institutions or systems. Tackling equity issues requires an understanding of the root causes of outcome disparities within our society.*

Inclusion

Inclusion

Inclusion is an outcome to ensure those that are diverse actually feel and/or are welcomed. Inclusion outcomes are met when you, your institution, and your program are truly inviting to all. To the degree to which diverse individuals are able to participate fully in the decision-making processes and development opportunities within an organization or group.*

About the Artist

Light flickering wavering oscillating
Between being and non being
Existence and non existence
A spectrum within oscillations
Scattering matter life color
Energy transformed and transforming
Beings becoming
Expanding growing stretching
Life is diversity, diversity is life
