The Office of the Dean of Institutional Equity and Inclusion is responsible for integrating equity and inclusion in every aspect of the educational, residential, and professional life of the College. The Dean and offices in this division work collaboratively with colleagues across campus to promote a culture of inclusion; implement policies in support of full participation; develop and coordinate programs that address equity and inclusion; and foster conversations to enhance open dialogue and discussion.

Vision: We envision Connecticut College as a diverse, equitable, inclusive and socially just community.

Mission: The Division of Institutional Equity and Inclusion leads in educating and supporting Connecticut College partners on how to embed cultural competency into policies, practices and campus-wide services. We advocate for social justice in our community and beyond, with courage, compassion, integrity and excellence.

In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
