Our Commitment to Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI)
IslandWood encourages a diverse group of applicants because we believe having graduate students that authentically reflect the students and communities we serve is critical to our ability to be culturally responsive.
We provide equal opportunities to all applicants for admission, and welcome applications from qualified individuals without regard to race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, age, disability, pregnancy, genetic information, marital status, amnesty, or status as a covered veteran in accordance with applicable federal, state, and local laws.
Gathering demographic information allows IslandWood to better understand the students we serve and how we are progressing with our JEDI goals. This information is not used in making admissions decisions, but may play a role in scholarship eligibility.
