Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Student Success

Current conversations challenge us to a higher level. You want to…

  • Be seen
  • Be heard

Each of you come to us from someplace different.  From across the country or across the globe, you are welcome in CFAES. Regardless of your identity, our entire DEI team is here to talk, support or just listen.

CFAES strives to be a place that embraces you and all you bring. Task us to provide a climate that accepts, provides safe space for, and values you. Your active participation is needed on the journey to be inclusive, equitable, and just. Bystanding equals silence so: please get involved!

Build skills through leadership and engagement as a member of MANRRS (Multicultural students in Agriculture, Natural Resources and Related Sciences) or Cultivating Change (for LGBTQ+ students, staff, and faculty and their allies who are interested in food, agricultural, and environmental sciences), be a voice in conversations, travel the country on service trips or for leadership workshops, stretch your experiences through programs such as Education Abroad in Panama: Through the Lens of AgriCulture, Sustainability, and Diversity,  or other study abroad programs, tour facilities that strive to create more inclusive environments, engage with our alumni.  

If you are interested in learning about MANRRS reach out to advisor Tiffany Halsell. If you would like to know more about Cultivating Change reach out to advisor Leo Taylor.
