The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology is committed to promoting diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) across its missions of research, education, and service. As a core value, diversity embodies respect for one another and appreciation of differences among people. To this end, we are mindful of all aspects of human differences, including (but not limited to) race, ethnicity, language, nationality, religion or belief in religion, disability, education, wealth, age, sex, gender identity and sexual orientation. DEI prioritizes mutual respect and consideration of multiple perspectives.
We believe that a diverse, inclusive and equitable environment strengthens community and acts as a catalyst for change within both the academic community and society at large. The department thus has a responsibility to provide opportunities and support for students, staff and faculty in an environment that welcomes all voices. We join IU School of Medicine in its commitment to provide equal opportunities to and positive mentorship for diverse learners.
