Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
The School of Oceanography is committed to cultivating an equitable and inclusive environment for all current and future members of the Oceanography community. We believe diversity is essential to achieving excellence in research and teaching, and thus we strive to create a community where people of all backgrounds feel welcome.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee:
The School of Oceanography Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee is made up of 6 core members, including faculty, staff, and graduate students. Additional members can be added for specific tasks (denoted with a * below). The committee provides recommendations to the Director and the Faculty Council on ways to increase equity and inclusion and promote diversity in our department.
