Diversity Statement and Committee Work

Department of Law, Societies, and Justice Diversity Statement

The Department of Law, Societies, and Justice seeks to foster an engaged, participatory learning community where everyone is treated with dignity and respect. We aim to be a diverse community, into which participants from a range of ethnic backgrounds, political opinions, genders, sexual orientations, nationalities, religions, and other identities are welcomed. We strive for inclusivity, where all members of our community feel valued for their contributions and are able to fully participate. And we aspire to educational equity, acknowledging and actively working to redress persistent and unjust barriers and provide the necessary accommodations, so that all students, faculty, and staff can fully realize our potential as scholars and practitioners of social justice.
