Diversity & Inclusion

The office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) in the Physical Sciences Division aims to help address diversity and climate-related challenges across faculty & OAA, staff, postdoc, and student ranks. Guided by a strategic plan spanning a period of five years, we will collaborate with units and partners to create and implement tailored plans, programs, and activities to further impact diversity and promote inclusion. We invite you to connect with us as we continue to build on the existing EDI foundation. Read more about the PSD EDI Director, Neli Fanning.

Vision

The Physical Sciences Division at the University of Chicago aspires to be at the forefront of equity, diversity, and inclusion practices in the physical and mathematical sciences. 

Mission

We work with all PSD units to advance discovery, innovation, and impact by cultivating an environment where our diverse community feels supported and valued. Additionally, the PSD aims to create sustainable infrastructure for access and development for groups underrepresented in the mathematical and physical sciences, promoting a climate where equity, diversity, and inclusion are foundational and all constituents achieve their version of success.
