OUR EQUITY LENS

equity lens icon

In order to break the predictive link between student demographics and student success, we must apply the principle of equity to all aspects of our schools/departments.

QUESTIONS

As you make decisions to support your work, consider the following:

  • Whose voice is and isn't represented in this decision?
  • Who does this decision benefit or burden?
  • Is this decision in alignment with the BSD Equity Policy?
  • Does this decision close or widen the access, opportunity and expectation gaps?
