2018-2019 Board of Trustees Inclusion Update

In the spring of 2018, Student Senate issued a 9-point commitment letter to the Edgewood College administration to make a public commitment to addressing some of the issues that students face daily at Edgewood College. This report reflects on the progress made in the past 12 months toward addressing the topics outlined in the Student Senate Commitment Letter. We continue to build on our public commitment to diversity & inclusion and believe that our vision of being an inclusive model of learning, teaching, and scholarship is interdependent upon creating a culture of belonging.


This report is organized around six major themes from the Commitment Letter: Creating a Bias & Hate Free Campus, Informing our Community of Progress, Involving Students in our Diversity Commitments, Diversifying Edgewood College, Faculty Professional Development & Evaluations, and Demonstrating our College's Commitment to Diversity.


In the spirit of transparency, we offer this update.

As Edgewood College graduates prepared to receive their degrees Sunday, their classmate Mamadou Jawo, who grew up in The Gambia, a small country in West Africa, told them they have the power to create “a just and compassionate world.”

Jawo, who described himself as a “proud African immigrant” from “the smiling coast of Africa, The Gambia,” pointed to injustices he sees in society, and called on his fellow graduates to work toward solving them. He said racism, sexism, misogyny, anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, xenophobia, homophobia and transphobia are all pressing issues that need to be addressed.

“We have the opportunity to step up, demand better, and help in solving these problems,” Jawo told the crowd of more than 400 graduates and around 2,500 family members and friends at the Alliant Energy Center. The graduates received bachelor’s, master’s or doctoral degrees in areas ranging from education to computer science, nursing to business finance.
