Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion in Behavioral Neuroscience

Department Diversity Statement

The Department of Behavioral Neuroscience is committed to ensuring that all graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, research assistants, staff, and faculty members are treated with dignity and respect. We understand that diversity enriches and improves the quality of research and ideas and creates an environment conducive to the development of novel, innovative solutions. We understand that a diverse representation in all levels of departmental functioning is key in promoting voices which might otherwise be silenced. We are committed individually and as a department to learning and growing so that we might continue to improve the ways in which we support diversity and respect, promote a welcoming environment, and abolish inequalities in all aspects of our work.
