Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Toolkit

The Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Toolkit ("The Toolkit") is a comprehensive website that provides resources to all institutions in the Commonwealth as a part of the Department of Higher Education’s (DHE) goals and Equity Agenda to “dismantle barriers to success and work toward ensuring a just educational experience within which students thrive”. Institutions vary in their progress to date in addressing equity issues; the Toolkit is meant to support all institutions as they continue the work to achieve equity and increase attainment. We will not be able to meet goals around educational attainment if we do not center our work on ensuring equitable outcomes for all students.

The Toolkit is organized by focus areas that are directly correlated with the strategies, priorities, and actions in The Plan. To use the Toolkit, users may search for a specific resource in the "Search for a resource" box or use the filter system to narrow in on resources that are of particular interest or relate to a specific part of the Plan.

If you are interested in submitting resources to be included in the Equity Toolkit, please submit using the Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Toolkit form.
