Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

The Math Department is committed to fostering an inclusive community, bringing together individuals from diverse backgrounds to celebrate and expand the power of mathematical thinking. Regardless of our students’ paths, they leave our Department with an enhanced ability to question, analyze and evaluate problems encountered throughout their lives.  

We recognize the value of having a diverse department and how individuals from different racial, ethnic, socio-economic, gender-identity and other backgrounds enrich our intellectual community. We also recognize that mathematics as a field and, more specifically, our department at Brandeis, has much work to do in the area of diversity, particularly in bringing in more math majors, graduate students, and faculty from underrepresented backgrounds.
