Diversity and Inclusion

From its conception to the present-day operation of the MMT, innovation has always been vital to the success of the Observatory. We believe that a culturally diverse staff will leverage different experiences and perspectives to drive creativity and foster future innovation. We are committed to improving the MMT staff’s diversity and to breaking down systemic barriers to success for underrepresented groups. We seek to build a culture that values our differences and is inclusive to all regardless of race, color, national origin, gender, gender identity, religion, age, disability, veteran status, or sexual orientation. We reject racism and misogyny, and will not tolerate prejudiced comments or actions by MMT staff or users.

We respectfully acknowledge the University of Arizona is on the land and territories of Indigenous peoples. Today, Arizona is home to 22 federally recognized tribes, with Tucson being home to the O’odham and the Yaqui. Committed to diversity and inclusion, the University strives to build sustainable relationships with sovereign Native Nations and Indigenous communities through education offerings, partnerships, and community service.
