Building a Culture of Inclusivity
We believe that a diverse and inclusive community of undergraduates, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty, and staff is critical to providing an exceptional education, pushing the frontiers of knowledge, and fostering innovation both inside and outside of the classroom.
Dartmouth recognizes diversity as relating to race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, disability, veteran status, marital status, or any other legally protected status. We also recognize that diversity includes differences in socioeconomic background and other less easily defined measures that comprise the rich breadth of human experiences, talents, and attributes.
Research demonstrates that working and learning in an environment that is diverse in thought and perspective results in improvement in the educational quality and organizational outcomes at all levels and for people of all backgrounds. Our ability to enhance our understanding of the world and the people around us requires that we recruit, support, and retain students, faculty, and staff that encompass the full diversity of our popluation.
