The SAS Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion supports all students, faculty, staff, post docs, and alumni in the School of Arts and Sciences. We support dialogue, inquiry, and programming that works toward creating inclusive and equitable practices to provide access to academic research environments and the pursuit of knowledge. We accomplish this through robust recruitment and retention practices, building and sustaining a caring and supportive community, and deepening knowledge as well as connection to one another.
