Mission Statement

The mission of the Institute for Diversity Science is to advance knowledge about phenomena related to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and to use this knowledge to suggest concrete solutions to diversity-related problems that our society faces.


  1. Identify the most effective methods to get individuals to behave in a less discriminatory and in a more inclusive manner.
  2. Identify the systemic and institutional barriers that prevent the success and upward social mobility of members of marginalized groups and examine the best ways to eliminate these barriers.
  3. Translate these findings into concrete and scalable interventions that can be used by practitioners.
