Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Our Commitment

We, in the Department of Computer Science at Dartmouth, believe that diversity at all levels -- intended in a very broad sense, including but not limited to race, gender, sexual orientation, disability, beliefs, interests, experiences, social, economic background -- is integral for positive learning experience, greater scientific discovery, and broader impacts in society. Thus, we are fully committed to increasing diversity in CS and to providing a welcoming, respectful, and inclusive environment where all people, regardless of their background, role and perspective, can succeed. 

This commitment is supported by concrete actions including:


To guide the DEI activities in the CS department, a DEI committee has been created. Its current members are:

  • Lorie Loeb (co-chair)
  • Alberto Quattrini Li (co-chair)
  • Amit Chakrabarti
  • Sarah Masud Preum
  • Bo Zhu

If you have any questions or comments for the DEI committee, please feel free to email us at cs-dei-group@dartmouth.edu.


In February 2023, Dartmouth launched Toward Equity: Aligning Action and Accountability, a three-year strategic plan which incorporates and improves upon diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging initiatives created by the College over the last decade.

The Office of Institutional Diversity and Equity is central to campus-wide efforts to create a more welcoming, inclusive, and equitable learning environment for the Dartmouth community. They offer opportunities for building community through workshops and other initiatives. Employee Resource Networks bring together members of under-represented communities with diverse talents and backgrounds. Other resources that provide support can be found through the links below:
