Project TIER is committed to diversity among the professionals with whom we collaborate and the students our programs ultimately serve. We seek to include members of underrepresented groups, women, low-income and first-generation college students, and individuals who face discrimination. We strongly encourage the participation of members of these groups, and those whose teaching and advising will reach students belonging to these groups. We strive to create a respectful atmosphere in which everyone has the opportunity to make contributions that reflect their individual perspectives and have a real influence on our programs and priorities.
