Inclusion, Equity and Diversity


Mission Statement: To cultivate a diverse STEM workforce by reducing barriers and promoting scientific progress through full inclusion across the social spectrum.

Vision Statement: The Office of Inclusion, Equity, and Diversity (OIED) within the College of Sciences and Mathematics (COSAM) believes that innovation results from individuals of different race, ethnicity, gender, disability, status, nationality, religious affiliation, sexual orientation and socioeconomic backgrounds working together to solve problems. It is only by stepping out of our comfort zone that we are able to better understand the skills we each embody and utilize our shared experiences to voice unique perspectives in STEM.

Recruitment: Our primary focus are students interested in STEM fields, but more importantly at the K-12 level, we are concerned with making sure students from underserved communities have access to resources that make college a viable option.

COSAM is committed to inclusiveness and providing opportunities that will assist our students, faculty, and staff in having a global impact on the STEM community. We aim to fulfill our mission of cultivating a diverse STEM workforce by attracting, developing, and retaining the best and brightest individuals from all backgrounds.

COSAM OIED will continue to seek unity within STEM diversity by focusing on programs that center on the academic needs of current and future students.
