The Department of History at New York University is committed to creating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive learning, teaching, and work environment. We believe that historical thinking stands at the heart of this endeavor. An understanding of past and ongoing forms of inequality and exclusion is essential to making anti-racism, religious tolerance, anti-sexism, and anti-bigotry central to a culture of excellence in the department.
Department of History Land Acknowledgment
The Department of History at New York University acknowledges that it is located in ancestral Lenape homelands, and it recognizes the longstanding significance of these lands for Lenape nations past and present. We are also conscious that New York City has the largest urban Native population in the United States. We believe that historical awareness of Indigenous exclusion and erasure is critically important and are committed to working to overcome their effects in our own educational institutions.
