Anti-Racism and Equity Commitment

The tri-campus department of sociology is committed to the fight against racism and the principles of equity, diversity, and inclusion. This includes hiring and retaining BIPOC faculty; diversifying our graduate students and facilitating a more inclusive curriculum; and creating a culture and climate based on respect. While much of this work falls to department leadership (the Graduate Chair and Chair of each campus), it is only possible when all members of our community – students, staff, and faculty – commit to the challenging and critical work of building a dynamic and inclusive department, university, and society.
