Liberal Arts Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee
The College of Liberal Arts Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Committee (LA EDIC) is a University of Southern Indiana College of Liberal Arts initiative committed to diversity and inclusion on our campus, and to promoting an academically enriching and supportive climate that allows all members to thrive and succeed.
We define diversity as differences in race, nationality or ethnic group, religious or non-religious tradition, gender, gender identity, socioeconomic class, immigration status, sexual orientation, ability, and other identifying factors. We believe that promoting and sustaining diversity is a commitment to educational quality, social justice, and the creation of positive, respectful communities. We recognize that our strength and success as a college is built upon the foundation of a wide range of perspectives and experiences.
We embrace and encourage diversity in many forms and are committed to inclusivity among our community members, including all students, staff, and faculty. We affirm the dignity and worth of everyone, we acknowledge that the health and success of each individual is possible only in a social context in which we each have responsibilities to others and others have reciprocal responsibilities to us, and we choose to live in solidarity with all people.
Center for Social Justice Education
The Center for Social Justice Education (CSJE), situated within the Social Work Department of the College of Liberal Arts at the University of Southern Indiana, was established in 2009.
The Center promotes social justice and empowerment through education, research, and collaboration. The Center is dedicated to individual and societal well-being in a global community, promoting critical thinking and a systems perspective across agencies, institutes, departments, and individuals to pursue social change for all individuals' well-being.
