Education & Education Reform
Programs to encourage greater diversity and inclusion, particularly in the leadership of educational institutions, are a central focus of NCRW’s work. We view affirmative action as an important component of efforts to level the playing field in all aspects of education – from access, to quality education, to teaching, tenure and administration. We have led important initiatives such as the Diversity in Higher Education Summit in 2006 and Ford Foundation-funded projects for diversifying the leadership of our member centers. Diversity and inclusion will continue to be overarching values that are central to our work and programs.
