The Department of Anthropology is committed to fostering a diverse, equitable and socially just community of students, faculty, and staff. We reject all forms of prejudice and discrimination in classrooms, offices, laboratories, fieldwork sites and other settings. We value and celebrate the diversity of the human experience that encompasses race/ethnicity, class, gender, citizenship, sexuality, religion and spiritual beliefs, language, age, and ability. We recognize these identities intersect in multiple and complex ways, privileging some and disenfranchising others. We are committed to providing safe and inclusive learning environments that promote respect for difference, challenge stereotypes, embrace individual experiences, and advance scholarship and advocacy of historically marginalized groups.
