Breck has recently launched an internal equity audit, partnering with two equity consultants, one of which is Design Impact, a firm that uses human-centered design to build a more equitable culture. The other is Dr. Charlotte Jacobs, who will work with academic leadership, faculty and staff on curriculum, policies, and practices spanning from admission through graduation. The culmination of the project is to co-create long-lasting change that will be felt by all community members.
Design Impact is wrapping up their discovery phase after meeting with focus groups and conducting interview calls. A big thank you to all the alumni who were able to participate in this part of the audit. In early February, Design Impact will present the patterns and trends about Breck’s culture, climate, as well as opportunities and barriers to DEI work at Breck. Join us!
