The Aim for Diversity

We approach diversity as a philosophy and as an objective. Central to our purpose is our commitment to attracting the widest array of music innovators into the college community and providing an environment that supports their 有创意的 process. We also seek to integrate these values into teaching and decision-making, as our students are influenced through leadership as much as through curriculum.

Diversity 值语句 and Definition

Cultural diversity is integral to the mission of 伯克利 simply because cultural diversity is integral to music itself. Innovators from diverse backgrounds and cultures have created the music studied here. An essential part of a 伯克利 education is gaining an appreciation of the rich variety and interdependence of the cultural traditions from which the music that students explore originates.

We must be a community in which every member’s voice is valued and respected. 一个多样化的, inclusive work and learning environment is essential to maintaining our role as a leader in contemporary music education. It is imperative that we take specific steps to attract and retain the widest array of talented musicians and provide an environment that supports and nurtures their 有创意的 process. The fulfillment of our mission—to educate, 火车, and develop students to excel in music as a career—will be demonstrated in their influence both on the future of music and on the larger culture.

We view diversity holistically, understanding that the definition is constantly evolving. Our definition of diversity includes race, color, 国籍, 种族, class, 宗教, 残疾, 年龄, 性, 性别认同, 性别表达, and 性ual orientation. We also know that a diversity of ideas, 方法, 学科, and learning and musical styles are essential to inclusion and equity. The integration of myriad cultural values and perspectives into what we do at all levels, from teaching to decision-making, 是至关重要的.

Many challenges lie ahead in all areas. We believe that increased diversity will support our strategic objective of attracting the highest-quality students, 教师, 和员工一起去伯克利. 要做到这一点, we must create a welcoming and supportive multicultural atmosphere for all members of our community. This focus is not the work of any one individual or office; it is the work of everyone. 本着这种精神, we will encour年龄 a campus-wide climate of respect, 开放, and awareness that celebrates and values our diversity.
