JEDI: Justice, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion
We are a group of graduate students, faculty, and staff dedicated to improving the department with the goal of being inclusive and supportive of all students, especially BIPOC, URM, women, LGBTQ+, and otherwise marginalized groups in science and engineering.
JEDI works to advance the department’s values of respect, acceptance, fairness, and accountability, and build a community in which the diversity and intersectionality of our members’ identities are recognized, accommodated, and celebrated. The initiative represents a joint effort among faculty, students, and staff, and is open to the entire departmental community. We are working to educate ourselves and our community to tackle the challenge of making our communities—small and large—more diverse and inclusive, more just and equitable.
