Inclusivity: In keeping with our tradition of academic excellence and social responsibility, the Department of Geosciences welcomes all peoples regardless of race, ethnicity, nationality, gender expression, sexual identity or disability status. We subscribe to the principles of self-determination for all peoples and intentionally seek to recognize and affirm all of the identities that we encounter. We seek to provide an intellectually diverse environment where different epistemological commitments are engaged and respected.
Basic Needs: Students who face challenges securing their food or housing and believe this may affect their performance in a course are urged to contact the dean of students for support. Notify your professor if you are comfortable in doing so. This will enable us to provide resources we may possess.
The EMBARK program provides resources for students facing homelessness.
