English and Film Studies, Department of
The Department of English and Film Studies is dedicated to teaching and learning, research, and service in three core areas: English in its many forms, sustaining a broad curriculum and an active pedagogy in established and emergent literary fields; production and teaching of creative writing across numerous genres including fiction, poetry, and creative non-fiction; and the engagement with film and allied media in a program embracing both historical contexts and theoretical approaches.
Equity Diversity Inclusion Community (EDI)
The EDI community contains a collection of resources to raise awareness and skills in creating respectful and inclusive work, teaching, learning, and living environments. Equity at its heart is about removing barriers, biases, and obstacles that impede equal access and opportunity to succeed as students, faculty, and staff in the academy. Diversity is fundamentally about valuing human and institutional differences and recognizing diverse talents to advance institutional excellence with equity. Inclusion is the active engagement of diversity and equity. Access goes beyond physical accessibility to include principles of universal design in all aspects of the University’s operations.
