Statement on equity, inclusion and diversity

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics includes and serves Faculty, Staff, and Students from a wide range of personal and professional backgrounds. It has long been a pillar of academic thought that diversity of perspectives fosters enhanced ability to advance science. We know that having a department of teachers, mentors, staff, researchers, and colleagues from a range of personal and professional backgrounds also enhances our ability to effectively serve our educational mission. We embrace the diversity of our department and community, including persons of varying age, disability, ethnicity, family status, gender, gender identity, geographic region, national origin, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status.
