USC CAIS Statement on
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

 

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) are highly valued principles at the USC Center for Artificial Intelligence in Society (CAIS) and are critical to our pursuit of academic excellence.  In particular we aim to encourage a culture in which every member of CAIS feels valued, supported and inspired to achieve individual and common goals, no matter his/her/their race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, nationality, immigration status, age, disability status, class, economic background, education, color, family structure, background, experience, or beliefs. This includes providing opportunity and access for persons in engineering and social work from historically under-represented or underserved groups.  We recognize the need for research centers like CAIS to not only take a stance on critical social issues, but also to actively engage in dialogue and action on these issues.

OUR PRIMARY GOAL
