Happy Pride Month
Headshot: Nicole Price.
Diversity, equity and inclusion affects all people, and everyone should be invested in understanding why. We are all affected because at the end of the day, we are at our best when every member of our community can live as their best selves. The very heart of diversity, equity and inclusion is basic respect and a sense of belonging.

Inclusive Excellence

Inclusive Excellence means actively and intentionally cultivating a diverse and culturally competent institution where each member has the opportunity and support to reach their full potential and make contributions to our campus community and beyond. Inclusive Excellence is at the center of Wentworth's new strategic plan to which everyone is accountable.

The Center for Cultural and Global Engagement

The Center for Cultural and Global Engagement (CCGE) programs at Wentworth promote cross-cultural perspectives, inclusivity, leadership development and personal growth among the Wentworth community. They foster a welcoming, brave and safe environment for all students with a specific focus on underrepresented populations and their allies through social and educational opportunities such as student organizations, trainings, and more.

The Center for Skilled Trades

The Center for Skilled Trades, part of Wentworth’s Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), aims to deliver education-to-career pathways driven by the needs of the local economy for all levels of learners. Built with the “community school” model serving as inspiration, participants have the opportunity to earn stacked credentials that will build their portfolio of skills. A pathway in Construction will serve as the Center's first pathway.

Office of Institutional Equity

Every person in the Wentworth community has a right to be free from discrimination in all Institute programs or activities. The Office of Institutional Equity ensures university-wide recognition of this right.

WIT Diversity Timeline

The Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and the Schumann Library & Learning Commons has partnered to capture significant moments in Wentworth's history that have contributed to campus life related to diversity, equity, and inclusion. In order to grow as an inclusive community, we must get to know our history, celebrate our present, and understand what we need to do to strengthen our future.
