- 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, acknowledges, and respects the knowledge and strengths
all students bring from their communities. 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. In this way, our graduates
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 communities. We
believe that all faculty and staff who work for the college must
share these same commitments. Click here https://ed.fullerton.edu/jeie/
