The Department of English seeks to create and maintain a culturally, intellectually and racially diverse academic community of faculty, students and staff. This commitment stems from our belief that diversity and racial equity within all our fields of knowledge contribute to a superior experience for our students, better preparing them for an increasingly complex society. Through curricular transformation, recruitment, support and outreach we seek to develop an intellectual community--from faculty, to staff, to graduate students, to undergraduates--that reflects the cultural and racial diversity of our state and supports the diversity goals that have been set forth in the University's Mission Statement, the College's Mission Statement, and the Graduate School's 2011 Diversity Report. We affirm diversity and racial equity as critical values that are integral to building intellectual communities across the University, and to advancing the intellectual projects of English language and literary studies.
