EDI Articles

The Department of Sociology is committed to embedding equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) in our unit in concerted ways and creating a space where everyone can be supported. This page provides links to articles that can help accomplish these goals.

Creating equitable, diverse, and inclusive spaces is a challenging task for any department.

These four metrics help demystify the EDI process and assess whether efforts are successful to help transform departmental climate and culture.
