Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Events
The Department of Biology is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). We believe it is our responsibility to redress inequities present in our department and to foster a community in which every member feels welcome, safe, and appreciated. To that end, we have established a DEI events page where members and friends of the department can find DEI events easily.
For additional DEI events visit the Arts, Sciences & Engineering diversity events page.
