Statement on the Role of Diversity

A diverse student body is and has long been critical to the educational mission of MIT. We are committed to providing our students “with an education that combines rigorous academic study and the excitement of discovery with the support and intellectual stimulation of a diverse campus community.”

This statement has been adapted from the CUAFA Statement on the Role of Diversity in MIT’s Educational Mission.


Guided by our Principles of Community, EAPS is committed to advancing diversity, equity and inclusion in our department, and in Earth science more generally. Read more about the department's current DEI efforts.
