Diversity

The Dietrich Graduate School of Arts and Sciences seeks to promote diversity among faculty and students.  We want to foster an inclusive environment for students and faculty and to increase the number of well-trained academics who reflect different cultures, ethnicities, socio-economic backgrounds, experiences, genders, religious affiliations, and sexual orientations.
