The Economics Department is committed to increasing the representation of underrepresented students, faculty, and staff. Our understanding of the word “underrepresented” includes race, gender, and gender orientation, socioeconomic status, as well as persons with disabilities, mental health issues, and other characteristics that may result in stigma. We are committed to creating a welcoming and supportive culture in which all students, faculty, and staff feel they belong and are able to thrive.
