The Department of Mathematics and Statistics supports Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in its policies, programming, and practice. We work to identify and eliminate structural racism and other systemic barriers that hinder our students, faculty, and staff from success. In particular, we strive for a department that is:

Diverse. We seek to recruit and support persons underrepresented in mathematics and statistics, and do not allow discrimination based upon characteristics such as race, gender identity, age, nationality, immigration status, sexual orientation, religion, disability status, and socioeconomic status.
Equitable. We aim to make resources available to persons based on their unique needs in order to promote the success of all members of our departmental community.
Inclusive. Our department must actively foster a sense of belonging that welcomes, respects, and supports the differences and unique cultures, identities, and beliefs held by our students, faculty, and staff.
