Equity & Inclusion

Equity and Inclusion

The Office of Equity & Inclusion partners with students, staff, faculty, and alumni to advance equity and inclusion through education and skill-building that inspire advocacy and action. We work to cultivate an environment where diversity is celebrated and elevated, so that 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 all members of the Penn Carey Law community to advance our commitments.

Community voices

The diverse identities, experiences, and perspectives of our community strengthen our learning spaces and facilitate an expansive world view. We elevate and amplify their voices, as we promote a robust exchange of ideas and deep respect for the value of difference.

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.
