Diversity and Inclusion in the School of Education

The School of Education (SOE) at the University of Pittsburgh strives to continually develop and maintain a culture that recognizes and celebrates a variety of backgrounds, experiences, viewpoints, and beliefs. We aim to recruit and retain a diverse population of students and administration who can contribute to an inclusive learning environment of mutual respect.

US Students of Color

At the SOE, we strive to maintain a progressive diverse landscape reflective of our diverse nation and world, and are committed to increasing the racial diversity of our School..


We recognize the importance of varying perspectives and experiences that serve to help shape inclusive ways of seeing the world and positively affect the future of education.

International Students

We acknowledge the importance of creating a global community of learners, and strive to be a School more reflective of the world and its differing and valuable perspectives.

Military and Veterans

The SOE is grateful to our current and former military members and their families for their service, and value the importance of that experience and its positive affect on the classroom and leadership.

Students with Disabilities

The SOE respects and celebrates individual differences as well as those who have an interest in creating and sustaining an inclusive educational environment. By providing equal opportunities for students with disabilities, the SOE is committed to creating and sustaining an inclusive educational environment.
