Diversity and Inclusion

History Department Diversity Statement

The Department of History at Texas A&M University is committed to building vibrant and diverse learning communities. Our work as historians involves critical research and teaching on how race/ethnicity, gender/sexualities, class, war, religion, politics, colonialism, and im/migration have shaped people’s lives in the past and over time. To reflect these commitments, the History Department offers courses that explore the complexities of history, the struggles for democracy around the globe, and the ways ordinary people have struggled to create a better and more just society for all. We recognize the need to recruit faculty, students, and staff from underrepresented backgrounds to build a History Department that is reflective of the diversity across the great state of Texas and the nation. We hold diversity, equity, inclusion (DEI) and anti-racism as core values; we actively affirm diversity in all its forms, and we are committed to making Texas A&M University a place where all are welcome.
