Our Dedication to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Following Smith’s legacy as our guiding force, Klein College strives to research and incorporate elements of diversity, equity and inclusion into the sports media industry.
Klein College is the 2018 winner of the Equity and Diversity Award from AEJMC. Following the reception of this award, Klein College developed a Diversity Advisory Council as well as the position of Diversity Advisor to the Dean - the first such position created in Klein’s history - held by Professor David W. Brown, was created in 2018. Professor Brown’s position and work provides us with the structure necessary to include diversity, equity and inclusion within the infrastructure of what the college is and intends to be.
Aligning ourselves with the legacy of Claire Smith, we believe these values are imperative to success.
