Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Statement
The Department of Biology at the University of Maryland College Park values the diverse identities of our students, faculty, staff, and alumni. We appreciate each departmental member for their unique contributions, abilities, and perspectives. We aspire to have our department reflect the diversity of the broader community. By embracing our diversity, we can better support each other in our mission to educate our students and conduct transformative research.
The Diversity Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Committee is developing a list of goals for the department to consider to improve diversity, equity and inclusion. Please reach out to members of the committee if you have ideas or suggestions for these goals.
