Regional Diversity, Equity & Inclusion leaders have formed a professional association, GPHEDC (Greater Pittsburgh Higher Education Diversity Consortium), bringing thought, policy and practitioner leaders together to tackle the myriad of issues impacting higher education and the broader community. The founders of GPHEDC envisioned an organized forum that brought higher education leaders together who worked throughout campuses and departments, to share best practices, training, professional development, policy and support.
The Greater Pittsburgh Higher Education Consortium (GPHEDC) is dedicated to facilitating transformative change by promoting diversity, equity and inclusion in the region.
