Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the GPS Division
The GPS Division is committed to cultivating an environment that enables all of its members to thrive and realize their full potential, irrespective of individual backgrounds and circumstances. The Division recognizes that diversity has many dimensions, pertaining to such questions as those of race, religion, ethnicity, origins, gender, sexuality, age, socioeconomic status, and disability. We hold that the range of perspectives and values that arise from our diversity is a source of creativity and innovation and is therefore integral to our continued academic excellence.
To help address the challenges of increasing diversity and fostering an inclusive climate, the GPS faculty has formed a standing committee dedicated to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), as well as an endowed fund to support its activities. The new standing committee is charged with reviewing institutional processes and making recommendations to the faculty that promote inclusivity and diversity within the Division.
