Statement of Diversity & Inclusion

The Department of History at Purdue University is unequivocally committed to the principles of diversity and inclusion.  Both are critical characteristics for nurturing open learning environments that integrate the multivariate perspectives of faculty, staff, students, and the broader community into our research, teaching, and engagement.  The department is also committed to providing equal opportunities for all who learn, work, and teach in the department without prejudice, intimidation, intolerance, or discrimination.  We value vibrant and open exchanges of ideas and believe that diversity of opinion, perspective, and people strengthen the department, the College of Liberal Arts, and the university generally.  As a department, we strive to act on this commitment to diversity and inclusion in all facets of departmental practice, policy, and procedures.
