Biology Inclusion Committee Mission Statement
The Biology Inclusion Committee is focused on furthering inclusion, equity, and diversity throughout the department. The committee includes representatives from the tenured/tenure-track faculty, teaching faculty, staff, postdocs, graduate students, and undergraduate students. The committee solicits input from department members in the form of confidential meetings, anonymous comment submission, and surveys. The committee presents at departmental gatherings, provides orientation information to new members of the department, organizes informational and training events, and drafts departmental policy towards increasing equity and inclusion. Meetings between the committee and similar committees in other departments are aimed at establishing best practices and coordinating across departments.
