Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The department of Germanic Languages and Literatures is committed to fostering an environment of diversity, equity and inclusion. We define diversity as including, but not limited to, the following: ability, economic status, ethnicity, gender, race, religion, and sexuality. We aim to create and maintain an inclusive environment through our undergraduate and graduate course offerings, outreach, programming and institutional policy. Our goal as a department is to uphold the values espoused by University of Michigan's policy on diversity, equity and inclusion: to increase diversity, to challenge and respond to bias and discrimination, and to pursue deliberate efforts to create a climate of inclusivity.
