Diversity and Inclusion

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 sexual 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.

Our plan of action describes several initiatives that we will implement in the Economics Department. We view these initiatives as first steps, and will add more in the future as we learn what works and what does not. Over the next months, we will regularly measure our progress towards our goal and ask you for additional constructive feedback.
