Acronyms to Action: A Blueprint for Success and Discussing More Inclusive Environments 

 

You know the meaning of DEI.

You believe in the value of seeing and appreciating the lived experiences of each person. 

You have created your own mentoring network. 

 

Now what? Who are you going to invite to join your network, and why?

 

The last several years have ushered a mass of students onto our campuses who are historically more inclusive because of their lived experiences. We see a greater desire to acknowledge, discuss, understand, and reconcile our past perceptions of generational flaws and a yearning for equity in today’s practices.  However, while intentions to live a life and to foster others to live lives that are more focused on DEI issues is a good start, intentions do not automatically result in outcomes. 

 

That takes effort.

That takes action.

 

If we can agree that our communities have the opportunity to be models for how we can learn and live together, then let’s strive to make it a reality. To do so, we must move from knowledge of a better campus culture to truly creating it.
