In our culturally and intellectually diverse community, we appreciate differences and similarities in one another as well as similarities, and aspire to be an increasingly inclusive department that attracts, retains, and values talented people from all backgrounds.
We believe in diversity in intellectual approach and outlook. We embrace diversity not as a keyword for token inclusion of the underrepresented, but as a commitment to facilitating open and respectful communication, and fostering a welcoming environment in which all individuals can achieve their fullest potential.
Our department is committed to building a safe and inclusive community for all its members through diversity, equity, and inclusion. This commitment extends to all facets of our department. Diversity promotes conversation, understanding, and collaboration. It helps further our mission to the university and the academic community, and enriches our entire department.
