Inclusion, Equity and Diversity


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 culturally competent STEM professionals by attracting, developing, and retaining the best and brightest individuals from a diversity of backgrounds.
Mission Statement: To cultivate a diverse STEM workforce by reducing barriers and promoting scientific progress through full inclusion across the spectrum of identity.
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 OIED is committed to providing resources to enhance awareness and appreciation of cultural and individual diversity, promote community, and prepare students, faculty, and staff to have a global impact in STEM.
