Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) at the USC School of Dramatic Arts serves as a space to empower collaborative and cultural innovation for the entire USC community. Led by Associate Dean of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Anita Dashiell-Sparks, and Director of DEI Chevaughan Dyer, the Office of DEI provides workshops and trainings that promote dialogue, awareness and allyship, as well as events that strengthen the experiences of the School’s community of students, faculty and staff. This programming is critical to furthering the School’s work to ensure authentic belonging and community within SDA for all community members. In addition, the Office of DEI also serves as a physical space on campus that seeks to help foster a safe community and to promote, nurture, and enhance the diverse creativity of historically marginalized voices.
