Diversity in Psychology

George Mason University is one of the most diverse campuses in the nation, and the GMU Psychology Department values our community members of all races, ethnicities, nationalities, sexual orientations, and gender identities. We strive to build and sustain an inclusive environment for our students, faculty, and staff. 

The mission of the Psychology Department Diversity Committee is as follows:

1) To assist and encourage the Psychology Department in the recruitment and retention of diverse faculty, staff, and undergraduate and graduate students;

2) To support the coverage of diversity in the Psychology curriculum;

3) To provide information to the Department concerning diversity resources and events at the University and in the local community.


Program Efforts

In 2016, the Industrial & Organizational Psychology program joined the signatories of the United Nations Global Compact. The program supports the Global Compact by advancing its ten principles for human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption. We are proud that this program integrates these principles in curriculum, research, and professional projects that directly relate to the Global Compact.
