Diversity Statement Prompt
Diversity is a defining feature of California's past, present, and future. Increasing the diversity of our educators to better reflect the population of California is just one aspect of the College of Education's dedication to just, equitable and inclusive education. Diversity refers to the variety of personal experiences, values, and worldviews that arise from differences of culture and circumstance. Such differences include race, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, language, abilities/disabilities, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, geographic region, and more.

All College of Education students leave with a perspective that recognizes, honors, and respects the knowledge and strengths all learners bring from their communities and identities. This perspective is known as Just Equitable and Inclusive Education (JEIE) and is evident in all our programs. College of Education students use this perspective to make community-based assets an integral component of curricular and pedagogical development to enhance academic success. In this way, our students learn to value and draw upon students' backgrounds not only to support them in developing skills leading to success in the broader society, but also as a mechanism to transform our schools and communities. We believe that all faculty and staff who work for the College must share these same commitments.

The diversity statement should focus on your commitment to a Just, Equitable and Inclusive Education. The diversity statement will be assessed based on knowledge, experience, application, and expertise as it relates to JEIE. The strongest statement will have an emphasis on the intersectionality between JEIE and a social identity or marker (social class, race, gender, sexual orientation, language, etc.)

This statement can take several different forms and should address at least one of the following:
  • Your contributions to advancing principles focused on JEIE.
  • How you incorporate principles of JEIE into your instructional practices, your research and/or service activities.
  • How you have personally experienced JEIE.
  • Your experiences and/or qualifications that enhance your ability to work with diverse students, faculty, parents, and community stakeholders.
