904WARD Statement on Florida Banning DEI Initiatives on Public College Campuses
January 26, 2024, Jacksonville, FL - Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives are essential for fostering an inclusive environment where students from diverse backgrounds can thrive academically, socially, and personally.
These programs not only promote cultural competency but also contribute to dismantling systemic barriers that may impede the success of underrepresented groups.
Many of the DEI offices that have been forced to close served as safe havens for students, a place where they could go and feel comfortable being their authentic selves.
904WARD opposes the decision to ban DEI initiatives on public college campuses in Florida. We believe that diversity is essential to create a vibrant and enriching educational experience
