The Department of Psychology deeply values diversity, equity, and inclusion. We are committed to facilitating a sense of belonging and community where all voices are heard and respected. We stand firmly against discrimination and prejudice of any and all kind, including (but not limited to) that on the basis of race, ethnicity, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, religion or creed, visible or invisible disability, and socioeconomic status.

A diversity of backgrounds, perspectives, and ideas is critical for reaching our full potential as individuals and as a department. We also recognize that our work to promote these values and fulfill this commitment at both personal and professional levels is an ongoing growth process to which we are firmly dedicated.

We are continuously looking for feedback on how to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion in our department. If you have comments or suggestions, please use our anonymous feedback form. Feedback will be checked and discussed regularly, though with less frequency during University breaks.
