Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion



Definition of Culture (NYSED)

The New York State Education Department "understands culture as the multiple components of one's identity, including but not limited to: race, economic background, gender, language, sexual orientation, nationality, religion, and ability. Culture far transcends practices such as cuisines, art, music, and celebrations to also include ways of thinking, values, and forms of expression."
