Diversity & Inclusion

The Dietrich School is a vibrant community of scholars and learners, strengthened by the broad range of experiences and perspectives that make us unique. We’re committed to promoting diversity and the understanding of diversity among our faculty and students, and across curricula. In the Dietrich School, we don’t just recognize our diversity—diversity is a resource of our community as we support each other in fulfilling our greatest potential.

Dean Hoock and the Director of Diversity Initiatives in the Graduate Studies Office, Philippa Carter, work with graduate programs to recruit, mentor, and support outstanding graduate students who embody the diversity of our city, region, and nation. We partner with the Arts and Sciences Graduate Student Organization and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion to identify resources, training opportunities, and experiences that advance the diverse excellence and inclusiveness of our graduate community.

The Dietrich School welcomes qualified candidates from across the country and around the world into our diverse community of learners. We work closely with referring faculty and staff partners from other colleges and universities to ensure that your best students receive the high-quality education and training that our graduate programs are known for and the personalized one-on-one attention that is rare within the context of a large research university.
