Diversity and Inclusion in Physics and Astronomy

Mission Statement

Diversity and Inclusion in Physics and Astronomy (DIP) is a registered student organization at UC Davis dedicated to building a safe, inclusive, and equitable environment for people in and around the Physics and Astronomy Department, especially those from marginalized groups. We seek to raise awareness of underrepresented backgrounds, identities, and experiences, and effect real change to support all those who face systemic barriers to success in our department. We provide a space for students, postdocs, staff, and faculty to discuss and learn about issues of diversity, equity, inclusion; and also to advocate institutional and policy changes that tackle these issues. By fostering allyship and pushing for systemic changes, DIP seeks to support and empower all social identities in our community, with the overall aim of equitable distribution of opportunities, resources, and development.
