Actions Taken

Program and Research Funding
  • The Office of Student Equity Excellence and Diversity (SEED) established an application process to compete for grants. These "provide funding for initiatives that support a diverse and inclusive environment at the University of Hawaii." This grant competition applies to all 10 campuses in the UH system.
  • Students in the Bachelor of Education with a concentration in Secondary Education program will “demonstrate knowledge of how theories and research about social justice, diversity, equity, student identities, and schools as institutions can enhance students’ opportunities to learn in English Language Arts.”
  • The school’s Sustainability Focus is a designation which focuses on “long-term promotion of environmental quality, human health, equity, diversity, and inclusion.”
  • In the IRES report, the school states its “commitment to diversity and inclusion.”
  • For faculty, the school provides DEI resources for “multimedia content.”
Symbolic Actions
  • The school’s Educator Preparation Program set a goal to “honor diversity, equity, and inclusion” and to “maintain a culturally responsive, student-centered learning environment.”
  • On August 22, 2023, the school announced a new team of campus executives, and “each member of this team brings a depth of experience and expertise across all components of the university coupled with their individual commitment to justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion.”
