What We Do

The Office for Equity & Inclusion provides leadership and guidance to address systemic inequities for all members of the Wesleyan community. Our culture of inquiry approach to enhancing the educational living and learning experience is designed to promote a healthy, thriving campus climate and a community of excellence predicated on respect for others.

We believe an equitable and inclusive education is transformative.
We act in a transparent manner, with respect for the knowledge and experience of others.
We selflessly serve and live our values together with students, staff, faculty, and other stakeholders to develop and support a community of inclusion.
