Initiatives With Impact

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, & Justice

The architecture of diversity and difference enables us as faculty to advance a broader, richer, and deeper understanding of how professionals in education and applied psychology can create a more just and compassionate world.
Ana M. Martínez Alemán, Associate Dean of Faculty & Academic Affairs
The Lynch School has a wonderful and distinctive mission: to enhance the human condition, expand the human imagination, and make the world more just. Through our research, teaching, and service, we strive to understand and create opportunities for others to develop as whole people across multiple interrelated dimensions—intellectually, spiritually, socially, emotionally, and ethically.
