Equity and diversity

The College of Biological Sciences values diversity and works to ensure an inclusive environment for  students, faculty and staff. Explore some of the equity and diversity resources available at the college and the University.

Diversity and inclusion are necessary to achieve breakthrough discoveries and to prepare today’s students to create the biology of tomorrow. In order to achieve inclusion for all students, faculty and staff, we are committed to the foundational scientific practice of examining assumptions and biases. We believe that a self-aware science community, active institutional efforts and individual advocacy will help remove barriers for the success of all community members across differences, including race, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, geography, and socioeconomic status or background.

CBS provides a variety of training opportunities and programming to support our diversity mission.
