The Department of Earth & Environment Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee is composed of dedicated undergraduate and graduate students, postdocs, staff, and faculty who work to uphold and advance the department’s commitment to diversity and inclusion. They work behind-the-scenes to compile resources, plan events, spearhead new initiatives, and guide decision making across all levels of the department and its activities.

If you are interested in joining this dedicated team, or if you want to keep up to date on the committee’s activities, we welcome your participation and input. Please contact 2023-2024 acting DEI Committee chair, Professor Mike Dietze ( to learn how to join our mailing list and get involved! We also welcome your feedback and suggestions for important opportunities for growth and development that the committee can work on.
