Equity & Advocacy

The Equity and Advocacy Committee

Who We Are

The purpose of this committee is to explore and utilize research and practices for integration of equity and advocacy.  The committee addresses and supports the Hunter College School of Education’s commitment to diversity as expressed in its Vision Statement and Conceptual Framework. The committee is driven to create a school climate that is inclusive and responsive to the assets of all learners with a wide range of backgrounds, cultures, languages, gender and sexuality identifications, abilities, and prior knowledge and lived experiences. As such this committee plans and creates institutional structures and educational experiences for our Hunter communities and stakeholders so as to deconstruct and dismantle bias and stereotypes in order to build and foster more inclusive environments both within our Hunter College School of Education and with our community partners.
