WCER's Commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Diversity is a source of strength, creativity, and innovation for UW?Madison and The Wisconsin Center for Education Research (WCER). Individual differences and group diversity inspire creative and equitable outcomes. WCER actively affirms values and seeks to increase diversity in our everyday interactions, practices, and policies.

Our center is conscious of inequities in the field of education and how these disproportionately harm the most marginalized members of our society - including people of color, people from poor and working-class backgrounds, people with disabilities, women, and LGBTQ people. We firmly believe that these communities must be centered in the work we do. Hence, we strongly encourage applications from people with these identities or members of other marginalized groups.
