COLLEGE-WIDE INITIATIVE ON
ANTI-RACISM

NEWS

The Diversity Equity and Inclusion Foundations Certificate is designed to offer faculty and staff the opportunity to engage in workshops to broaden awareness about DEI topics, engage in dialogue, and increase understanding of current issues. 

The American Dance Festival in association with Meredith College presents Les Ballets Afrik on Thursday, September 14, and Friday, September 15, 2023, at 7:30 p.m. The performances will be held in Jones Auditorium on the Meredith College campus. ADF’s presentation of Les Ballet Afrik is supported by the United Arts Council of Raleigh and Wake County.

In May 2021, Meredith College received a grant from the Arthur Vining Davis Foundations to support Cultivating Equitable and Inclusive Pedagogical Practices in STEM Higher Education, a project that aims to create fully inclusive and equity-based STEM programs at Meredith. Project researchers have an update on the project findings. 

Meredith College is working to foster an inclusive and pluralistic campus environment where all are welcomed into our living, learning, and working community. In our policies and our practices, we recognize differences and acknowledge that these differences are valued assets that enrich our community.

The anti-racism initiative reflects our commitment to strength, integrity, and the power of education to bring about real and lasting change across Meredith’s campus, especially for BIPOC members of our community and others who have not always felt seen or heard.

The College is actively addressing diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts in all departments and administrative processes. Our work is ongoing, action-oriented, transparent, and root-focused. Guided by our foundational values, we cultivate a spirit of openness and inquiry and respect a range of perspectives and voices.
