Organizational Studies Program Statement in Support of a Diverse and Just Community
The Organizational Studies Program embraces the University of Michigan’s commitment to an environment that values and respects people of all races, colors, national origins, ages, sexes, sexual orientations, gender identities, gender expressions, abilities, religions, heights, weights, and veteran or marital statuses. We value diversity as it makes our unit stronger in its scholarship, teaching, and service to the campus and communities beyond.
Our efforts to promote diversity start with our curriculum. First, we are committed to offering courses that address issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion in organizations and in society more broadly. Additionally, as an interdisciplinary academic unit, we are committed to understanding organizational problems from a diversity of social scientific perspectives.
We also strive for a diverse student cohort to engage organizational issues by bringing varying life experiences to the classroom. This includes social identity diversity as well as diversity in students’ academic and professional interests.
As a community, we oppose all expressions of bigotry and hate. We support those individuals in our community who stand up against expressions of bigotry, racism, white supremacy, and hatred, wherever they are found.
We strive to support our students and faculty on the front lines of learning and research and to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, Organizational Studies needs your support.
