The College of Social Sciences and Humanities (CSSH) believes diversity and inclusion are central to achieving our goals of academic excellence, experiential liberal arts, and global engagement. The Dean’s Civic Sustainability, Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Council (CSDI) is dedicated to ensuring a culture of inclusion and promoting diversity efforts within CSSH. We seek to fulfill goals and objectives outlined in the Northeastern2025 Academic Plan and central to the essence of Northeastern. 

Culture of Inclusion

We will do this by building on the College’s established commitment to civic sustainability. Civic sustainability is a method used to frame everyday interactions in the highest regard for each other’s dignity, habits of mind, ways of being, and means of expression. This practice will create a culture of inclusion in which diverse peoples, languages, and ways of thinking are valued and shared in collective efforts to address the pressing social concerns of our time.
