We are committed to inclusion and to achieving equity as part of our teaching, service and research. We strive to build a community where everyone’s well-being is valued and people are supported, not just heard.
We are dedicated to attracting, recruiting and retaining students and faculty from all backgrounds. We want all members of our community to see themselves here and to find a home where they can flourish and make a difference.
Through our research and scholarship, our department also explores and informs connections between groups, across cultures and within the communities we serve.
Scholarship and Academic Opportunities
- Our department and the College of Humanities and Social Sciences awards various merit and need-based scholarships. Visit the Pack ASSIST portal to learn about additional opportunities across the university.
- The college has more than two-dozen student organizations that allow students to explore their interests and broaden their perspectives.
