Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI)
Our DEI Mission: Mount Holyoke College strives to build and maintain a campus environment that is inclusive, pluralistic, and free of discrimination. Diversity, equity and inclusion efforts extend beyond specific departments and are embedded in all areas of the College.
Diversity and inclusion efforts focus on understanding our community's multiple identities through the lens of social justice education, ally development, and identity development.
The College acknowledges and values the intersections of race/ethnicity, gender, class, sexual orientation, ability, age, national origin, and religious/spiritual identities in the classroom, in cocurricular activities, and in personal relationships.
In addition, we seek to generate connection and communication rather than polarization around these facets of identity.
