The Department of Mathematics at Columbia University fully supports the University’s mission to advance diversity by supporting individuals from diverse backgrounds. We believe diversity, equity, and inclusion are essential to advancing excellence in education and research activities.

We strive to develop a culture where every single member of the Department is supported in a safe and welcoming environment for their research, teaching, and learning.

  • To create and promote a healthy and inclusive departmental climate and work culture
  • To actively pursue and create STEM diversity and inclusion initiatives supported by the Department, the Provost, Columbia College, and the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences to support the scholarship and research experiences of underrepresented individuals
  • To continuously monitor and review admission policies and requirements to identify obstacles that may affect historically underrepresented groups in our field
  • To achieve a diverse faculty and student body in our programs
