Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in MEAM

MEAM’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Task Force, which was formed in the fall of 2020, regularly convenes to (a) tackle immediately pressing DEI issues in MEAM and (b) develop a longer-term plan for improvement and change for all matters relating to DEI.

MEAM DEI Resources & Opportunities

The MEAM Department is particularly proud to have such a diverse and strong community here. In support of that diversity, and to promote an inclusive culture that works to overcome all forms of bias and discrimination, we are proud to announce a new program: MEAM’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Scholarship. This opportunity is open to MEAM undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdoctoral scholars, and is an opportunity to build community and enact change.
