Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Task Force
President Botstein has appointed a standing task force of Bard administrators to work with the Council for Inclusive Excellence (CIE). This group will keep the community informed on a regular basis on the steps being taken.
In the Classroom and Beyond
Bard College has historically been a sanctuary from ethnic, political, religious, and other forms of intolerance. We embody this legacy today with a strong investment in both local and global initiatives, from our Center for Civic Engagement to the Bard Prison Initiative and Early Colleges, as well as with our programs in Bishkek, Berlin, East Jerusalem, and St. Petersburg. Our curriculum encourages students to deepen their understanding of diversity, equity, and inclusion through the distribution requirement, Difference and Justice, and Engaged Liberal Arts and Sciences courses, as well as programs of study that create space for historically marginalized voices in the academy.
