Diversity Statement

“Diversity really means becoming complete as human beings - all of us. We learn from each other. If you're missing on that stage, we learn less. We all need to be on that stage.”

Juan Felipe Herrera,
U.S. Poet Laurete

Our department has been one of the most successful on campus at creating a diverse body of faculty, postdocs, and students. We want to recruit and retain scientists of all races, ethnicities, cultures, countries, abilities, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, and socioeconomic status. We believe that it is not only the right thing to do, but it also makes for better science.
