JEIE/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, 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.
The diversity statement should focus on your commitment to just, equitable, and inclusive education. This statement can take several different forms and may address:
Your contribution to issues of JEIE
How you incorporate issues of JEIE into your teaching materials and methods or in your research
How you have personally experienced issues regarding JEIE
Your experiences and/or qualifications that enhance your ability to work with diverse groups
The prompt will be reviewed looking at knowledge, application, experience, and expertise as it relates to JEIE. The strongest statement will look at the intersectionality of JEIE Social identity or marker.
