  • Does your university’s engagement with the broader community in JEDI initiatives enhance its reputation and contribute to positive student experiences?
  • Is ongoing professional development on JEDI topics for faculty and staff improving the overall campus climate and student retention?

Why is JEDI work important for Higher Educational Institutions?

In Higher Education, fostering a culture of Social Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) among staff and students is crucial for creating an enriching learning environment. Collaborating with staff through training and workshops aids in developing inclusive practices, enabling them to better support students from diverse backgrounds. By promoting a stronger culture that values diversity, colleges and universities can significantly impact student retention rates. Offering coursework that integrates DEI/JEDI principles equips students with vital social skills and enhances their resumes with sought-after abilities. These skills, including empathy, cultural competence, and collaboration, align with the demands of modern employers, preparing students for success in a diverse and global workforce. Emphasizing DEI/JEDI initiatives in higher education not only enriches the academic experience, but also equips students with the tools needed to thrive in an increasingly interconnected world.
