Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Accessibility

The Department of History of Art & Architecture at Boston University is committed to building a more equitable, diverse, accessible, and inclusive learning community. Our faculty and staff recognize the need to work proactively – in collaboration with students and community members – to create a department that welcomes, values, and supports all individuals and the identities they hold, including those of race, ethnicity, class, ability, sex, gender, sexual orientation, religious affiliation or secularity.

This ongoing work shapes every aspect of our department’s culture, informing our hiring and recruitment priorities, admissions practices, and overall pedagogical approach to the curriculum.

Holding the advancement of diversity, equity, access, and inclusion as a core value, we fully endorse the commitment of Boston University and the College of Arts and Sciences to these principles and join in their mission to ensure the paths to academic, professional, and social success are open and unimpeded to all.
