Departmental & university-wide initiatives to increase Justice, Education, Diversity & Inclusion

We actively strive to recruit and retain URM and LGBTQ+ students:

  • We use a holistic admissions review process and no longer require the GRE
  • We participate in the "Unlearning Racism in Geoscience (URGE)" initiative by forming a pod of engaged students and faculty

Our department follows best practices for advising of graduate students:
