We, the members of the Department of Classics at the University of Cincinnati, are committed to establishing a supportive, constructive, and equitable climate for all who share in the life of our department, including students, staff, faculty, and alumni. We firmly believe that the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion are fundamental to a rich and vibrant community in which all members feel respected and valued. In all aspects of academic life, from scholarship to pedagogy to community engagement, we aim to foster inclusivity through practical initiatives which affirm and reflect these principles. In support of these ideals, we distribute resources to the community on a monthly basis, promote inclusive pedagogy, and coordinate an annual MetaClassics speaker series which highlights self-reflective and intersectional approaches to making the field a more diverse and welcoming space. A joint committee of faculty, graduates, and undergraduates in Classics is dedicated to ensuring the proactive implementation of these initiatives.
