      Director of Equity & Social Impact

Finding your voice is a process that requires meaningful collaboration and empathy within a community.

Drew's inclusive community is made up of diverse people and allows every single person to show up and be their authentic selves. Equity and inclusion work at Drew fosters an environment in which equity and respect for others are core and where you can show up without concern of prejudice.

The goal of equity and inclusion work at Drew is:
  • To allow students to learn about themselves as multifaceted individuals
  • To learn about and how to respect the differences and similarities of others
  • To be able to broaden awareness about the world and how it interconnects with one's own life.
  • To develop cultural competency
  • To build a community of trust, honesty, openness, dialogue, and respect here at Drew

Affinity Groups

Drew builds community by intentionally devoting space and time for students to connect with peers linked by a common background, interest, or purpose through affinity groups.

Whether it’s based on cultural and ethnic background, nationality, socioeconomic status, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, religion or creed, ability/disability, learning difference, age or generation, beliefs and values, or attitudes and opinions, these groups provide students space to explore and share issues of identity.
