Urban and metropolitan universities have for many years been addressing the needs and interests of increasingly diverse communities and a more diverse group of students, all of whom seek a welcoming environment when they join a campus community. We will explore what we are learning about how to bring the concepts of equity and inclusion to life on college and university campuses. We will explore how these issues are unfolding, what we can learn from our experiences, what questions we should think about and what assumptions we should explore as we seek to create educational environments that are shaped by a deep commitment to equity and inclusion.
