Our mission is to cultivate an environment where we are pushing the frontiers of astronomical research and pushing the frontiers of our personal astronomical knowledge. The nature of this enterprise is both collaborative and driven by individuals. It is therefore vital that all individuals feel welcome and supported by our environment. There are inequities and barriers to inclusiveness that are clearly evident in our our society as well as within our academic field. The data reveal generic trends, but it is important to recognize that these selective additional burdens are born by individuals in our astronomy community and in our department. We continually work to maintain an inclusive and equitable department, and we maintain a commitment to each other at all levels of our community. If there are any concerns, questions, suggestions, or problems, please do not hesitate to reach out to a trusted individual in order that the department can address it.
