Advancing the O’Neill School’s mission to lead for the greater good
At the O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs, we actively strive to cultivate diversity, equity, and inclusion. Our faculty, staff, students, and alumni engage in scholarship, teaching, and professional practice to enhance democracy, increase trust in public institutions, address issues of systematic inequality, secure public health and safety, and improve the well-being of individuals, families, communities, and the environment.
As the premier school of public and environmental affairs in the world, the O’Neill School recognizes that identifying solutions to complex and intersectional issues requires the inclusion of diverse voices. We aim to respect and elevate the voices of all community members, whose diverse perspectives span the dimensions of race and ethnicity, national origin, culture, and language; gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, and marital status; religion and political perspective; age; disability status; veteran status; and socioeconomic status. The O’Neill School values the engagement of all faculty, students, staff, alumni, and community members in these endeavors.
