Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

NGP Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Diversity Statement

At the core of the Neuroscience Graduate Program (NGP) is the belief that the scientific enterprise is inseparable from the commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).  Our success is greatly attributed to the diversity of our students and faculty, who provide a wider scope of vision and depth of experience to our program.  We commit to engender a diverse community that is accessible, safe, and inclusive.  This includes, but is not limited to, providing opportunity and access for all across differences of race, age, color, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, religion, national origin, migratory status, disability/abilities, political affiliation, veteran status and socioeconomic background.  Bias in any form has no place in science or the Neuroscience Graduate Program.  We pledge to equally support the success of all community members, and we commit to respond with humility and transparency to all inquiries.  It is our fundamental belief that diversity, equity, and inclusion are an essential part of training on both the student and faculty level, and we strive to produce graduates that excel as both scientists and advocates.
