Peabody Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

By paying special attention to the needs of underrepresented populations, the Office of EDI has a key role in ensuring the inclusion of all students on campus, providing a safe space and holistic and inclusive approach to the educational experience.
The mission of the Peabody Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) is to provide visible and deliberate leadership and programming to ensure that all students, faculty, and staff feel welcomed, supported, and part of the Peabody community.  We are committed to providing expanding opportunities for underserved populations and resources to help individuals thrive. 

Peabody Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion strives to further the mission of the Vanderbilt Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion “ to intentionally foster institutional equity, diversity and inclusion by creating educational opportunities, raising awareness and providing strategies and tools to bring to life the vision of inclusive excellence, both on our campus and in our city,” serving as a safe space and advocate of equity for all Peabody students, faculty and staff. 

We work to create and maintain an equitable and inclusive campus that empowers all Peabody students, faculty and staff to learn in diverse and inclusive communities. We hope to grow as culturally sensitive and respectful individuals who are equipped and inspired to be active and engaged citizens of the communities they serve.

We envision a campus where:

1.Social Justice and Equity are used as a lens for creating and evaluating  institutional policies and procedures.

2.Equity, diversity and inclusion are institutionalized through campus policies procedures, and are considered germane to academic and social success.

3.Diversity is recognized as a core value and celebrated through conversations, events and programs.

4.All campus members feel they belong and are empowered to discover and live out their truth.

5.Campus members are provided with opportunities to explore their identities, individually and collectively.

6.Campus members are equipped with the knowledge and resources to advocate for social justice through conversation and action on-campus and off-campus communities.

7.Campus members are aware of campus and community resources available to support their success.  

We do this in part by providing spaces for diverse perspectives and voices to be heard, valued, and appreciated.  Some of the ongoing programming offered by the EDI office include:

  • Student social gatherings
  • Forums
  • Listening sessions
  • Dean’s Diversity Lecture Series
