Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Musicians Institute (DEIMI)
The Committee on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Musicians Institute (DEIMI) is committed to supporting diversity by creating safe environments that allow all people to be heard, communicating on behalf of our community on issues that affect our campus, the music industry at large, and the world, educating our community on how to be more inclusive, and advocating for changes at Musicians Institute to make our educational experience more equitable for all.
Create an environment that values listening and communication by creating regular opportunities for faculty, administration, students, and alumni to voice any issues related to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Represent the community as a whole in matters of diversity, equity, and inclusion as students, faculty, and administrators to ensure equity and inclusion at all levels of the organization.
Lead and develop educational efforts that will foster a culture of inclusivity in our day-to-day life both on and off campus.
Communicate the priorities of the committee and address any issues related to our campus and the world.
