Social Equity + Inclusion (SEI) Office

RISD is committed to social equity and inclusion. In today’s interconnected, rapidly changing world, members of the RISD community benefit from a heightened level of intercultural literacy and global awareness. Our community also shares core principles of inclusion, equity, access, agency and mutual respect, both on campus and more broadly through our individual interactions in the world.

This collection highlights the steps RISD has taken to ensure that we uphold our mission and values and fully integrate them into the fabric of our campus culture.

"We embrace difference—the very distinctiveness that makes each member of the community a valued contributor to life and work at RISD." - Rosanne Somerson, President
