Diversity, Inclusion, Justice, and Equity

The dije committee seeks to serve all Michigan English teachers and their students in ways that privilege diversity, inclusion, justice, and equity.

Mission and Goals

 

The dije (pronounced dee’ hay) subcommittee of the Michigan Council of Teachers of English seeks to serve all Michigan English teachers and their students in ways that privilege diversity, inclusion, justice, and equity by recognizing a range of diversity in Michigan English teachers and their students; by recruiting, supporting, and retaining historically underrepresented Michigan English teachers; and by supporting the dije work that teachers do or want to do in their classrooms.

If you are a pre- or inservice English teacher and/or teacher educator who wants to do or who is doing dije work, we are here to support you.

If you are a historically underrepresented pre- or inservice English teacher and/or teacher educator, we are here to support you.

PD Grants
