Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

At BU Wheelock, we are committed to being the cause of systematic and individual changes that lead to more equitable, diverse, and inclusive environments. We encourage all our students, staff, faculty, and alumni to come together as a community and engage with each other to do the following:

  • Cultivate mutual respect and a sense of belonging
  • Support marginalized faculty, staff, and students, whose experiences enhance learning, research, and partnerships
  • Advocate for systemic, structural changes through radically honest self-reflection
  • Empower agency within ourselves, each other, and community partners to address privileges and inequities in education and human development (such as race, gender, sexual orientation, ability, hearing status, and socioeconomic status, among other factors)

We can all be catalysts for change. This means working together to leverage power and privilege to disrupt historical and ongoing oppressive systems. We hope you’ll take a look at BU Wheelock’s resources related to equity, diversity, and inclusion.

Affinity Groups

BU Wheelock hosts several affinity groups for members of our community interested in building networks, supporting one another, and helping each other hone their skills. These groups build a sense of community and belonging—and offer students the chance to meet others who may understand their culture, background, or area of study.

If you’re interested in joining one of our affinity groups, email the contacts listed below to get started.
