CAN/DID: Inclusion in Practice at De Anza, Part III

We’ve also released a new video from the CAN/DID Inclusion Series leading up to the event. This installment is the third and last in our series on Inclusion in Practice at De Anza.

In the video, Edmundo Norte, dean of Intercultural and International Studies, discusses the importance of humanizing educational institutions and “welcoming all the dimensions of our humanity" in our work.

Over the past year, we’ve been examining important topics related to equity and social justice, with videos and social media posts about the Black Lives Matter movement and anti-Asian racism.

We will continue to address important issues during the 2021-2022 academic year, with installments focused on topics that are important to De Anza's Latinx and LGBTQ+ communities, among others.
