About the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Task Force (DEITF)

Berkeley College established the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Task Force (DEITF) in order to remain responsive to local and national challenges of racial equality, systemic racism, and social justice. The Task Force, comprised of faculty, staff, and administrators, conducts outreach to all members of the Berkeley College community, including students and alumni, as it develops an action plan to establish and measure institutional priorities to advance diversity, equity and inclusion efforts.

“Berkeley College proudly serves a very diverse student population, and we must make certain that diversity, equity and inclusion is woven throughout our practices, policies, staffing, and decision making,” Reed said. “We are living in unprecedented times, and that requires unprecedented action and assurance of equality and representation for everyone. There is no better place for that to happen than in higher education.”

“The time has come for each individual to examine their roles in perpetuating discrimination, bias, and bigotry – of any form and in any manner, whether concealed or obvious – and to be a part of the solution in remediating and eradicating these societal wrongs.”
