The Trachtenberg School of Public Policy and Public Administration recognizes, values and actively promotes the vital importance of developing public service professionals who can successfully operate and create results in a diverse and inclusive twenty-first century environment.
Governance within the United States and abroad requires intentional engagement with issues of individual, social, economic, geographic and historical differences. The school pledges to:
- Sustain an inclusive atmosphere through the recruitment and retention of students, faculty and staff from diverse and historically underrepresented populations
- Develop a curriculum that actively engages with the differential impact of public policy on various cultures and groups
- Foster an academic environment that promotes informed, honest and respectful dialogue on challenging policy and administrative issues.
The Trachtenberg School is dedicated to developing public policy leaders and public administrators who understand and influence domestic and international affairs by actively promoting diversity and inclusion within the academic environment, the workplace and public policy decision-making.
