For the second consecutive year, Edgewood College hosts an all-campus diversity forum to celebrate our vision of becoming an inclusive model for teaching, learning and scholarship.

This year, we commit to ensuring all members of our learning community belong at Edgewood College.

Edgewood Summer Scholars Precollege Program

July 15- July 19, 2019
8:00am - 4:00pm, daily

Edgewood Summer Scholars is designed for a diverse group of students entering sixth grade in the fall of 2019, and will give them experiences that build their academic skills. Throughout each day, small groups will be led by Edgewood College students to various project-based classes taught by Edgewood College faculty. Classes will be in the Arts, Humanities, Social Science and Natural Science. At the end of the week, there will be a student showcase and a mini graduation ceremony for family members. Students from diverse backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.

Toward a Pathway to Purpose

Annual Inclusion Update

In the fall of 2017, Edgewood College President, Scott Flanagan, introduced a new Strategic Plan which sets a dynamic framework to guide our actions and decisions into the future. Three strategic themes (Student Learning, Inclusion & Community Impact) provide the grounding for our framework and Strategic Area #5 specifically highlights our commitment to building an inclusive College where individuals across the rich spectrum of diversity succeed and belong.

This annual report reflects on the significant strides in the past 12 months toward achieving Edgewood’s vision of being an inclusive model of learning, teaching, and scholarship. Institutionally, we continue to build on our articulated commitment to diversity & inclusion and fundamentally believe that diversity is a core element of meaningful teaching and learning. This report is organized around six major sections: Investing in Diversity, Living Out Our Commitment, Events & Campus Engagement, #NotOnOurCampus, Deeping Partnerships, and Campus Demographics.

Together, we have made great progress in developing a foundation for inclusive excellence, but it is important to recognize that there is still much work to be done to ensure every student and employee can be successful at Edgewood College.

In the spirit of transparency, we offer this annual update on inclusion.
