Center for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Masters Commencement participants

The Center for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion was established to provide support for Berklee’s diverse community. Our responsibility is to integrate the variety of cultural values and perspectives at Berklee into what we do at all levels through policy development, resources and education, and sponsorship of initiatives for staff, faculty, and students. These strategies are designed to nurture a spirit of respect for, openness to, and awareness of the spectrum of values and backgrounds that enrich our environment.

The Aim for Diversity

We approach diversity as a philosophy and as an objective. Central to our purpose is our commitment to attracting the widest array of music innovators into the Berklee community and providing an environment that supports their creative process. We also seek to integrate these values into teaching and decision making, as our students are influenced through leadership as much as through curriculum.
