Diversity and Inclusion
The Office of Diversity and Inclusion was established by former President Mariko Silver in 2015 as part of the College's commitment to developing a comprehensive infrastructure for the advancement of inclusion, equity, and pluralism at Bennington.
"The College affirms the intersecting identities of all its community members—students, faculty, staff, and alumni—and recognizes their contributions to the vitality of our unique living and learning environment. The College’s approach to pluralism and inclusivity—both as fields of inquiry and practice—is to prioritize flexible thought, and to invite the examination of access, value, and power through its institutional policies and areas of study."
