The Diversity and Inclusion team works in collaboration with units and individuals across Berklee to foster a more diverse, inclusive, and equitable community through institutional engagement, education, resources, and programming. A core mission of our work is to deepen awareness, knowledge, skills, and practices across our community in order to effectively engage across the rich tapestry of differences in backgrounds and identities in our school and world. We advance this mission across Berklee’s learning environments in support of our community’s students, faculty, staff, and campus leaders through:
