Carnegie Mellon University

Supporting Diversity and Inclusion

The Department of English values DEAI

Carnegie Mellon University houses the Center for Student Diversity & Inclusion, an on-campus unit dedicated to actively cultivating a strong, diverse, and inclusive community capable of living out these values and advancing research, creativity, learning, and development that changes the world. 

The Center is available to English Department students, offering resources to enhance an inclusive and transformative student experience in dimensions such as access, success, campus climate, and intergroup dialogue. Additionally, the Center supports and connects historically underrepresented students and those who are first in their family to attend college in a setting where students’ differences and talents are appreciated and reinforced.

The values of DEAI are embedded in the English Department's intellectual mission.  English Department students are encouraged to speak to the Department leadership as well as our Department advisors to discuss these topics and their experience at any time.
