Social Justice, Inclusion & Belonging
NYU Silver is committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion and continues to propel forward our efforts to increase diversity among students, faculty, and staff. We foster a climate of safety and respect for all members of the school community and prepare students to work with diverse populations across practice settings.
As the Silver School’s inaugural Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), I am responsible for advancing the School’s DEI initiatives and working closely with a variety of partners to promote a more diverse and inclusive environment. I am committed to providing strategic leadership to support the continued development of diversity, equity, and inclusion in all aspects of teaching, research, field experience, scholarship, and learning.
