Equity & Inclusion

Equity and Inclusion

The Office of Equity & Inclusion celebrates and elevates the diversity of our community. We partner with faculty, staff, students, and alumni to advance equity and inclusion through education and skill-building that inspire advocacy and action. We cultivate an environment where every member of our community can thrive with a sense of belonging. This site showcases our law school community’s active engagement on diversity, equity, and inclusion, and includes resources that will help us advance our commitments along the way.

Access

We are committed to increasing the diversity of our legal
profession by supporting access for members of communities
that have been historically underrepresented. Through pre-law,
law school, and professional programs we target inequity of access
and opportunity, supporting student success.

Our pipeline initiatives engage students at every stage of their academic journey beginning at middle school and leading up to higher education and beyond. Program participants learn about the law school experience, application process, and various legal practices available to them with a law degree.
