Dear Pratt Community,
I am excited to share Pratt’s first Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Progress Report for academic years 2019 and 2020. The report provides detailed results on the implementation of Pratt’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Strategic Plan since the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion was established in 2018. It includes institutional, school and unit level accomplishments, as well as diversity statistics on students, faculty, staff, alumni and Board of Trustee members. Thank you to Communications and Marketing, Institutional Research, Enrollment Management, Institutional Advancement, and all of the other colleagues across campus that collaborated with my team to produce this comprehensive report.
As our country reels from the recent death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and last week’s unjust decision in the Breonna Taylor case, it is clear that this work is more important than ever and that we must actively demonstrate our commitments to diversity, equity and inclusion. I am very proud of everything we have achieved together in the last two years, and look forward to continued partnership with everyone in the Pratt community to advance our diversity, equity and inclusion goals.
Nsombi B. Ricketts
Vice President for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
