The pursuit of Inclusive Excellence is a central part of the Department of Mathematics’ mission.

As a department and as a community, we affirm and acknowledge the rich commonalities and differences we bring, and the inherent value of all who work and study here. We aspire to create a welcoming and inclusive space, where each person is appreciated for their intrinsic worth, where the rich diversity of our campus and our society is reflected, and where everyone can fully participate and contribute. We recognize that our ability to carry out our scientific and educational mission rests on our ability to realize these values. The Inclusive Excellence Committee is a primary vehicle in all of the department’s efforts to foster these values and to ensure that everyone feels welcome.


The Inclusive Excellence Committee consists of Natalia Komarova (Chair), Mike Cranston (ex oficio), and the following members: senate faculty: Knut Solna, Patrick Guidotti, Jesse Wolfson, Alessandra Pantano (DECADE mentor), Manny Reyes, Roberto Pelayo, Jeff Viaclovsky; staff: Stacy Mason; VAP: Anna Ma; lecturer:  Neil Donaldson; graduate students: Dong Yan and Jesse Kreger; undergraduate students: Andrea Aguilar and Anthony Meza.
