DIB Committee

Our Departmental Committee on Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging is composed of faculty, staff, and students/trainees from across all areas of the Department to ensure that we’re serving the needs of our community in all roles and positions.

What inspired you to join the DIB Committee?

  • A science seeking to understand and improve human experience is necessarily a diversity science.
  • ...to advocate for changes in our department that empower every member of our community to bring their whole selves to their research, everyday.
  • Like many individuals who are members of historically minoritized groups, I feel called to DIB work, in part, as a gut-response to improve the environments I find myself in...
