About Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at SCI

Rosta Farzan, a Pitt PhD alum and professor at Pitt’s School of Computing and Information for more than eight years, will embark on her journey as SCI’s first Associate Dean for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion during the spring 2021 term. By bolstering a welcoming and respectful community, Farzan wants to work on providing more equitable opportunities within the school and to ensure that historically underrepresented groups enter the field of computing and information at greater levels.
