The goal of this initiative is to highlight diversity and inclusion in the School of Music (SOM) curriculum, programming, guest artist recitals, and guest speaker presentations. The faculty of the SOM will continue to prioritize the representation of historically under-represented groups in these areas. The students of the SOM will join faculty in the planning and presentation of these highlighted events and activities and by engaging in the ongoing discussion about diversity, equity, and inclusion within the SOM.
