"At Curry College in the Graduate Ed program, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion centers our work-- it drives what we teach and how we teach. As a psychologist and educator, I have spent the last 20 years examining how culture influences behavior and teaching about such influences. I am committed to engaging Curry students to deepen their understanding of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion."
As director of Curry’s Graduate Programs in Education, Dr. Giordana Basta has set in motion a path for her students to understand what equitable education means as they consider careers in the field. With the help of colleagues, Dr. Basta has established a chance for students to earn an M.Ed. in Diverse and Equitable Instruction (DEI) at Curry.
