Social Equity and Inclusion

The Center for Social Equity and Inclusion is currently led by RISD's Associate Provost for Social Equity and Inclusion, Matthew Shenoda, who is charged with guiding and coordinating institution-wide efforts aimed at making our community more diverse and welcoming of differences, and ensuring that all students, faculty, and staff have the access, opportunity and support they need to benefit fully from the RISD experience.
