Diversity Statement
Geography is an interdisciplinary field that brings together the physical and social sciences, and as such represents the core values of university education. Our diverse department is comprised of scholars, students, and staff from a wide range of cultures, nationalities, races, and social backgrounds who work together to create an inclusive space of engagement and dialogue. Our classes deal with the pressing issues of our time, from climate change and water quality to racism, sexism, and economic inequality, and we are committed to maintaining an environment of inclusiveness, respect, and social justice in our classrooms and on campus.
