Diversity, Inclusion & Access at AMS
AMS DEPARTMENT MISSION
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!
