Applied Mathematics

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

In the Division of Applied Mathematics, we value, respect, and support each person, whether faculty, staff, or student. We know that fostering a diverse and inclusive community will enhance the Division’s excellent academic reputation and ensure its continued success. People of any age, disability status, ethnicity, gender, nationality, race, religious belief, sexual orientation, and socio-economic background should have the resources, opportunities, and support necessary to realize their full potential. Therefore, our goal is to build a strong community that focuses on the needs of each individual and ensures that the right conditions are in place for each person to belong and thrive.

If you have any concerns, ideas, or suggestions about the climate and community in our department, please reach out to us! Our Applied Math Comment Box allows you to leave comments/suggestions and to report incidents anonymously to the department.

Our departmental Diversity and Inclusion Committee meets regularly. Our goals are to develop plans to improve climate and increase diversity and inclusion. We will also work on a revision of the  2016 departmental diversity and inclusion action plan (follow the link to view this plan). If you would like to find more about the committee members and the minutes of previous minutes, please visit the DIAP Committee website. There is also a website devoted to the Academic Department DIAPs.  Please feel free to reach out to us!

We will update this webpage soon with more information about courses, event series, programs, and seminars related to our diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts.
