The College of Science at George Mason University is committed to advancing access, justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (AJEDI) throughout our STEM community. At Mason Science, our values include fostering an organizational culture that promotes Anti-Racism, belonging, respect, and civility. We believe that a diversity of opinions, cultures, and perspectives is what provides vibrancy to an academic community. Diversity is a source of innovation, energy, and growth. By adopting an AJEDI mindset that prioritizes inclusive excellence in academics, teaching, research, and global engagement, we strive to attract a diverse pool of students, faculty, and staff who exemplify the Mason Science mission and vision.
