Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

» Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Dodge College of Film & Media Arts drives its momentum by celebrating a global and diverse group of cutting-edge filmmakers.

As part of that commitment, Dodge College takes a proactive approach to ensuring diversity, equity, and inclusion are woven into the fabric of our programs and community. In the past year and a half, Dodge has:

  • Hired 25 new part-time and full-time professors of color.
  • Created the College 101 Mentorship Program, a three-way venture with Loyola Marymount University and the nonprofit College Access Partnership. Each year, Dodge students mentor 15-20 of the best and brightest high-school students from underrepresented backgrounds, helping them prepare for college and attend Chapman
  • In collaboration with Spotify, producer Chuck Lorre (THE BIG BANG THEORY) and the National Association of Theater Owners (NATO), we provide several full-ride scholarships to students from south Los Angeles and Orange County, all of whom have participated in The Hollywood Reporter’s renowned Women in Entertainment Mentorship Program.
  • Dodge and Morehouse College have partnered on a program that enabled students from the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) to attend Dodge's Master Classes, featuring such top industry names as Halle Berry, Judd Apatow and Guillermo del Toro.

    And this is just the beginning!
