  • Decolonizing Methods: Fielding Graduate University commits to re-framing DEI issues through a decolonizing lens that allows for greater inquiry regarding systems change and thus a broader range of sustainable solutions.
  • Targeted Universalism: Fielding Graduate University commits to engaging the complexity of diversity and the broad range of human lived experience through a framework that is simultaneously universal and global, as well as targeted to specific community needs.
  • Inclusive Design: Fielding Graduate University commits to Inclusive Design as a standard that enables and draws on the full range of human diversity in providing solutions and creating greater access.
