Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity in ESPM

For ESPM to successfully prepare students to contribute to environmental fields, we understand that inclusive and equitable environments, curricula, and research are essential. We explicitly acknowledge and celebrate the diverse students, staff, and faculty in the ESPM major. At the same time, we recognize the personal and systemic racism and oppression within our systems, which has to change. 

As an interdepartmental major, ESPM draws faculty and staff from several CFANS departments, all working toward more inclusive and equitable practices and environments. Specific information on those departments’ efforts can be found on the following pages, supported by the University’s and CFANS’ efforts.

Department of Entomology

Department of Forest Resources

Department of Soil, Water, and Climate
