The Graduate School Advance to a Higher Degree

Diversity, Inclusion, and Advocacy in Graduate Education

Our mission at the Graduate School is to forge a safe, diverse, and inclusive community for all of our students, staff, and faculty. We understand that we are better together and therefore strive to advance diversity in every facet of our organization. The global problems we face can only be solved through the collaboration and partnership of heterogeneous groups across myriad dimensions. As a result, we value the opportunity to engage with people of diverse backgrounds and ardently stand against all forms of discrimination.

The Graduate School is proud to embrace all students, staff, and faculty regardless of race, religion, color, sex, age, national origin or ancestry, marital status, parental status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, socioeconomic group, political beliefs, genetic information, disability, or veteran status. We are pleased to affirm that many of our staff members are Safe Zone certified, and have undergone Accessibility training. 

We see you. We hear you. We are here for you.
