NGP Diversity Statement

The Neuroscience Graduate Program is committed to diversity as we recognize that the variety of personal experience, values and perspectives are fundamental to the promotion of excellence in graduate education and in the advancement of biomedical science, particularly as it relates to an understanding of brain function and treatments for brain disorders.  We encourage diversity in race, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, language, abilities/disabilities, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status and country of origin. The NGP encourages and promotes diversity in recruitment, retention and advancement of talented students as well as the faculty and staff with whom they interact. The NGP uses a number of strategies to achieve these goals including active recruitment of populations that historically have been underrepresented. More information on these strategies can be obtained by contacting the NGP at ngp@ohsu.edu
