Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity is critical to the process of discovery. Here, different backgrounds, viewpoints, and perspectives are not only sought after and encouraged, they are the building blocks that make rigorous inquiry possible. While there is still much work to be done, we are committed to enabling all people to fully participate in the life of the University.
