Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee (DEIC) at RSMAS

The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee (DEIC) at the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science is charged with promoting an environment in which every member of the RSMAS community is valued and with developing the appropriate programs to fulfill the commitment to caring for the diverse faculty, staff and student bodies. The committee enhances the awareness among the RSMAS community on diversity, equity and inclusion issues toward eliminating biases resulting from gender, ethnicity or sexual orientation. More about what D, E, I, and C mean to us:

Diversity

Science works best when it draws from the broadest pool of talent and lived experiences. We consider the broad scope of diversity, including but not limited to: race, ethnicity, sexuality, gender identity, geographic origins, economic background, religion, cultural practices, family status, disability status, and veteran status.

Equity

Every member of our community should have access to resources and opportunities that allow them to achieve their greatest potential.

Inclusion

Every person should feel welcome, valued, and able to achieve their greatest potential. We believe that a culture of inclusion is the most important precursor to achieving goals of diversity and equity. University of Miami fosters a "Culture of Belonging" that every member of our community should uphold.

Committee

Our committee is composed of a faculty representative from each of our five departments and the RSMAS library, staff representatives, and student representatives.
