Welcome to the Office for Equity & Inclusion

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.

Equity and Inclusion Week 

Following the conclusion of the 2nd Annual Diversity Summit in January 2022, we began discussing the implementation of a more robust and substantive event.  

In 2023 we began hosting Equity & Inclusion Week; a week of programs and activities centering the themes of equity and inclusion. From discussion spaces to ‘lunch & learns’ to informal gatherings, we look forward to coming together in community as we practice and uplift our values.

Equity & Inclusion Week is hosted by the Office for Equity & Inclusion and made possible by a committee of colleagues from across the institution.

    Pathways to Inclusive Education (PIE)

    Our goal is to remove obstacles along the pathways to secondary and post-secondary education for students in grades 9 through 16, who come from historically underrepresented backgrounds.

    Discrimination, Harassment, and Sexual Misconduct

    Ultimately, the responsibility for maintaining an environment free of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation rests with all members of the University community.
