Diversity & Inclusion

The SEOE is committed to supporting and prioritizing Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice in the representation, leadership, and opportunities of the students, faculty, and staff. We are expanding awareness of diversity issues in our classrooms and engaging in outreach to our communities and academic fields. This work is ongoing, and being continuously adjusted and improved under the leadership of the SEOE Diversity Committee. 

To learn more about the SEOE philosophy on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice, please read the SEOE Diversity Statement. The SEOE Diversity Statement complements the College of Arts and Sciences’ commitment to diversity and inclusion and the University of South Carolina’s Carolinian Creed.   Please contact Dr. Jessica Barnes [] for more information on current efforts or if you are interested in participating.

One of our key goals is to support students from diverse backgrounds and foster their success. On these pages, we have brought together a set of resources that are available at UofSC and beyond, which might be of use to students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds.


Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
