Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at GRI

Consistent with W&M’s university values and our own diversity, equity, and inclusion plan, we consciously build and support a collection of teams that include people from a wide range of national, disciplinary, methodological, ideological, gender, racial, and ethnic backgrounds.

Fundraising Initiative: Post-Doctoral Fellowship for Academic Diversity

This key initiative tackles the dual challenge of improving diversity of both researchers and students who focus on global challenges. Researchers from underrepresented groups come to William & Mary for two or more years to mentor students. These scholars integrate their work with ongoing research projects at GRI or create their own research labs. Learn more about the program here.
