Diversity & Inclusion

Programs to encourage greater diversity and inclusion, particularly in the leadership of educational institutions, are a central focus of NCRW’s work. We view affirmative action as an important component of efforts to level the playing field in all aspects of education – from access, to quality education, to teaching, tenure and administration. We have led important initiatives such as the Diversity in Higher Education Summit in 2006 and Ford Foundation-funded projects for diversifying the leadership of our member centers. Diversity and inclusion will continue to be overarching values that are central to our work and programs.

These might be bigger issues than schools can influence.
