Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Committee Mission Statement

The Department of Mathematics is deeply committed to action that will increase diversity, advance equity, and foster greater inclusivity in our department and more broadly in STEM. The mission of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee (DEIC) is to guide the department in sustained efforts to recruit and retain a diverse faculty and student body, and to build a culture of equity and inclusivity where students, faculty, and staff of all backgrounds can learn and work.

Inclusivity refers to an appreciation and respect for these differences and barriers.

The DEIC’s role is advisory to the chair and the Executive Committee of the department and its charges include:
