Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Department of Political Science Diversity and Equity Committee

The Diversity and Equity Committee’s purpose is to build capacity within the Political Science Department to engage effectively in supporting equity and inclusion, contributing positively toward a climate that values and includes all voices. Our goal is to create a work environment that promotes awareness and acceptance of individual differences, fosters mutual respect, and enables students, staff, and faculty to achieve their highest potential.

We situate our work within the larger context of the university’s commitment to sifting through and reckoning with our history in order to move toward a better future.
