The Department of Anatomy, Cell Biology and Physiology is a diverse community of faculty, students, and staff that represent a range of nationalities, cultures, religions, and socio-economic backgrounds. We are committed to celebrating diversity and inclusion as well as maintaining a culture of inclusion, acceptance and mutual respect.
We partner with IU School of Medicine, other Departments, and numerous IU Centers/Institutes to uphold three foundational pillars: representational diversity, inclusive working and learning environments, and cultural competence. We strive to communicate with respect, encourage discussion, support those who feel marginalized, and promote diversity initiatives from all corners of the university and surrounding community. We acknowledge that we are not perfect and that mistakes happen. That said, we encourage humility, transparency, practicing grace when others make mistakes, and engaging in continuous self-reflection. Our goal is to build and maintain a collaborative environment in which all community members are welcomed, supported, and empowered.
