Rubenstein School Commitment to Diversity
The Rubenstein School is committed to enhancing the understanding of the natural world in ourselves and our constituents through full inclusion of the unique and valuable perspectives reflected by diverse peoples.
Diversity Plan (PDF) - Diversity initiatives in the School began in 1988 with USDA grants to support high school outreach and multicultural scholarships. In 1996, faculty and staff formally endorsed our Diversity Plan (PDF).
Diversity Task Force - The Rubenstein School's Diversity Task Force (DTF) is a volunteer group of faculty, staff, and students committed to issues of diversity. The DTF generates and contributes to diversity initiatives in curricular and other programming in the School including exciting visiting speakers from the environmental and social justice arena. View a list of past speakers. The DTF also works closely on University-wide diversity efforts.
Curriculum - The Rubenstein School curriculum reflects multicultural perspectives, for example, as part of a University-wide requirement, undergraduate students complete 6 credits of race and culture course work. Read more about the diversity curriculum in our school.
Recruitment - Faculty and staff visits to a partner school (High School for Environmental Studies in New York City) and related programs (The Nature Conservancy LEAF program) help young students make connections between natural sciences, social sciences, and natural resources. Meet some of our multicultural scholars, fellows and students of color. In addition, RSENR places great emphasis on recruitment of multicultural faculty and staff.
