Diversity, Inclusion & Access at AMS


Fostering respect, welcoming diversity and supporting inclusion is a principal focus of the AMS department. We believe that cultivating creativity for scientific advancement and future success relies on educational and contemporary visions involving a diverse and inclusive community.

AMS diverse community

The AMS community is a diverse community with students and faculty from 16 different countries on 5 different continents.






We want our stakeholders, students, alumni, and peers to see us as leaders in DI&A.  To do so, we will:

  • Have a fair and equitable allocation of service and resources.
  • Ensure we have organized open forms for discussions that address issues in DI&A such as book clubs and/or movie clubs.
  • Promote training surrounding DI&A issues.
  • Ensure our instructors are implementing inclusive classroom best practices.
  • Ensure we are consistently evaluating our progress and setting new goals.
  • Ensure we are promoting a shared responsibility among our department members.


Involvement is when change happens. Multiple opportunities exist to become informed and improve diversity, inclusion and access in the AMS department. Please join!
