The Graduate School of Education is deeply committed to fostering a diverse, equitable, inclusive, and socially just community through a broad array of events, initiatives, and services. We seek to provide students, faculty, and staff with the awareness, knowledge, and skills to be effective and culturally competent teachers, counselors, librarians and information specialists, administrators, and leaders within their profession and the surrounding Buffalo community but we cannot do this work alone.
We depend on alumni, friends, allies, community members, and corporate sponsors to further this work. We are committed to creating an equitable, diverse, inclusive and just community of faculty, students, staff and administrators where all feel welcomed, included, supported, empowered and have equal access to supports, services and opportunities that ensure learning and success. Our commitment requires that we turn our attention to both internal and external aspects of ourselves and the work we do.
Contributions to the Equity, Diversity, Justice and Inclusion Fund will sponsor guest speakers, workshops, consultants, professional development, and other programmatic initiatives, that promote diversity and inclusion and benefit the GSE community and beyond.
