Department Demographics

We are committed to increasing diversity in our department. The first step in our journey is to acknowledge and quantify the problem. To this end, below we show plots for students and faculty where the populations are split into female/male, and URM/non-URM groups.

The URM definitions are:

  • URM Faculty: American Indian or Alaskan Native, Black or African American, Hispanic/Latino, or Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander
  • URM Student: American Indian or Native Alaskan, Black (Non-Hispanic Origin), Hispanic, Multi-Racial Minority.

This data has been collected by Human Resources or Admissions and represents how individuals self-identified using the definitions given above. We acknowledge that the data is arranged according to a gender binary system.

These plots serve as an internal check and as a constant reminder of our primary goal of increasing diversity and creating a working/learning environment where everybody can thrive.
