Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Accessibility

The Graduate Program in Integrative Biology (IB) rejects racism, systemic bias and inequality, and supports broadly inclusive environments in our scientific and academic communities. We recognize the legacies of privilege and racism within the biological sciences, and in our country, and we strive to understand that history, its current manifestations and challenges, and its disparate impact on trainees, faculty and staff, so we can learn and improve our training efforts across the IB community.

We are committed to creating a supportive and equitable learning and research environment where all individuals can thrive, regardless of their race/ethnicity, religion, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, dis/ability, political opinions, socioeconomic status, or veteran status. We aim to recruit, support, and develop future leaders in STEM from as many facets of our society as possible.
