Here, in the Department of Geology and Environmental Science at James Madison University, we value the exchange of ideas and the benefit of diverse perspectives when framing, identifying, and solving scientific problems.

It is an opportunity and a privilege to learn from, serve, and interact with diverse individuals from all backgrounds in a community of respect and understanding. To this end, we welcome a multiplicity of identities including, but not limited to, gender, gender identity, ethnicity, race, age, religion, spiritual belief, sexual orientation, geographic origin, socioeconomic background, veteran status, and varied abilities.

We strive to create an environment of learning, scholarship, and mentorship that is free of prejudice, intimidation, or discrimination. We expect all members of our departmental community to uphold these values.
