Fletcher held an alumni town hall to discuss diversity, inclusion and belonging on June 25. Read a transcript of the conversation.

Join a community that celebrates difference

Diversity, inclusion, and belonging (DIB) are at the very core of the Fletcher experience. They play an essential role in equipping our students with the global perspective they need to serve as changemakers and leaders. Our community is built on a foundation of mutual support, respect, inclusion, and collaboration, and we believe that actively seeking out perspectives, cultures, and experiences beyond our frame of reference is critical to truly understanding the issues facing the world.

At Fletcher, we believe that we are made stronger by our differences, and that those differences can open doors to new opportunities to create lasting, meaningful change on a global scale.  In 2017, the Dean of the Fletcher School was one of many Deans who signed the Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs (APSIA) Commitment to Diversity.

Another way to join the community is by applying to join Fletcher's staff as the full-time Associate Director, Diversity and Inclusion.   The Associate Director will report to the Assistant Dean for Diversity & Inclusion and will support and advise on all of the school's diversity and inclusion initiatives.

Be part of the conversation

We host a series of activities and events throughout the year to help foster diverse voices and ideas across campus. Student and faculty organizations provide an opportunity to build meaningful connections, and we have created policies to ensure that Fletcher is a safe place for every member of our community.
