Driving Inclusive Excellence through Training, Education, and Research

To continue meeting the demands of an increasingly diverse society and to prepare our students to be effective change agents in a global world, Agnes Scott’s teaching community and administration continuously examine the social patterns and systems that have — and continue to — shape teaching and learning at the college.

Our commitment has led to several concerted plans and actions that advance a climate of inclusive excellence, including:

  • Continue to hold space for faculty and staff to engage in courageous conversations around cultural and social issues through the Think Live Engage intercultural dialogue series.
  • Launch the Professional Inclusive Leadership Program to support our colleagues in their J.E.D.I.B. journeys.
  • Offer J.E.D.I.B. related professional development for all employees, with a focus on performing their jobs better and with integrity and authenticity.
  • Conduct regular workforce analyses for each department, broken down by race/ethnicity and position held, in accordance with the Equal Employment Opportunity Executive Order 11246.
  • Implement and widely train the campus on the college’s non-discrimination policy to encourage reporting on issues of discrimination.
  • Embed and expand upon opportunities to decolonize the curriculum in various disciplines.
  • Work with the library to verify the histories of underrepresented employees of color.
