Visual Art

Diversity and Inclusion

The Department of Visual Art at Brown has been engaged in a University-wide project of researching, crafting and presenting departmental plans that address issues of Diversity and Inclusion in relation to our curriculum, faculty, programming, staff and students.

In the Spring of 2016, the Department of Visual Art established a committee comprised of faculty, staff and students to conduct surveys, run Town Hall meetings, and conduct research that led to the writing of the Visual Arts Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan (VADIAP).

The VADIAP committee will continue to meet over the next five years in order to insure that the Department of Visual Art is a diverse and inclusive department that is responsive to the needs of all members of the Brown community.
