What are the 8 Dimensions?
8 Dimensions of Diversity Pedagogy
Human diversity makes tolerance more
than a virtue; it makes it a requirement for survival.
~Rene Dubos
Dimension 1: Diversity
Dimension 2: Identity
As long as the differences and diversities of mankind exist, democracy must allow for compromise, for accommodation, and for the recognition of differences.
~Eugene McCarthy
Dimension 3: Social Interactions
We all should know that diversity makes for a rich
tapestry, and we must understand that all the threads
of the tapestry are equal in value no matter what
their color.
— Maya Angelou
Dimension 4:
Culturally Safe Classroom Context
Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and you help them to become what they are capable of being.
— Johan Wolfgang Von Goethe
Dimension 5: Language
We all live with the objective of being
happy; our lives are all different and
yet the same.
~Anne Frank
Dimension 6: Culturally
Inclusive Content
If we are to achieve a richer culture, rich in
contrasting values, we must recognize the whole gamut of human potentialities, and
so weave a less arbitrary social fabric, one in which each diverse human gift will find a
fitting place.
~Margaret Mead
Dimension7: Instruction
Never doubt that a small group of
thoughtful, committed citizens can
change the world. Indeed it is the only
thing that ever has.
— Margaret Mead
Dimension 8: Assessment
One day our descendants will think it incredible
that we paid so much attention to things like the
amount of melanin in our skin or the shape of
our eyes or our gender instead of the unique
identities of each of us as complex human beings.
~Franklin Thomas
I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
~Maya Angelou

What we have to do... is to find a
way to celebrate our diversity and
debate our differences without
fracturing our communities.
