THE LESLIE CENTER POLICY ON INCLUSION, Diversity, and Equity
The Leslie Center advances the study of meaning, purpose, and creativity in the human experience. We support humanities research and projects that engage students, faculty, staff, and visitors at Dartmouth College and beyond.
In keeping with that mission, we recognize that discrimination profoundly harms individuals and communities, whether it is based on race, sex, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, religion, nationality, economic class, or whether it takes any other form. At the Leslie Center, we combat such discrimination by valuing inclusion, equity, and diversity in all that we do.
We foster inclusion by prioritizing research and events open to everyone, and by enabling all humanities scholars to thrive in the Dartmouth community.
We promote equity through the design of our funding opportunities, paying special attention to the particular needs of newer scholars, scholars from underrepresented groups at Dartmouth, and scholars in emerging fields of inquiry.
We celebrate diversity of identities, backgrounds, and academic approaches in various ways: in the awarding of funds for a broad range of humanities research and projects; in the membership of the Faculty Advisory Committee; in the teaching teams in our Humanities course sequence; in the selection process for our postdoctoral fellows.
