Teacher Education Diversity Committee (TEDC)

Mission Statement

We are committed to enhancing diversity by fostering partnerships, leaderships, awareness and communication for students, faculty and staff in the College of Education (COE) and Teacher Education at Purdue. We are dedicated to celebrating and understanding differences and similarities; providing educational opportunities that are inclusive and promote respect among traditionally under-represented groups; and addressing issues of social inequity by promoting social justice.
