Cover Story

COMING TOGETHER IN HARMONY We’re living in a historical moment—one where we can turn our differences into assets that can be embraced and celebrated. The School of Music is building a new wave of awareness when it comes to equity, diversity, inclusion, and belonging (EDIB). While we’ve made strides, we know we have more work to do . To respect and be respected. To listen and be heard. To recognize and embrace differences. To be open, kind, empathetic, and caring. To feel valued, worthy, and significant. That’s what EDIB means to us. The School of Music asked a group of our faculty, alumni, and students to share their thoughts on EDIB. Some wrote short essays about their experiences while others offered advice, but they all believe that equity, diversity, inclusion, and belonging will impact the future of music at every level.
