Diversity, equity, and inclusion are highly valued and prioritized at the Friedman School and at Tufts University. We aim to foster a community at Friedman that leads the way in preparing a set of leaders who are ready to address the effects that inequities have had on food, the environment, and the health of communities in the U.S. and around the world.
The School is currently working to promote and improve outcomes in the areas of diversity, equity, and inclusion through initiatives such as the standing Committee on Social Justice, Inclusion, and Diversity, the School’s overall Strategic Planning Goals, and the Student Alliance for Social Justice and Racial Equity. Friedman’s efforts both support and are supported by a University-wide effort to promote social justice, diversity, and inclusion. Our action plan is outlined in our article about Addressing Racial Injustice With Action and more details will be posted soon with links to updates and progress.
