The Department of Physiological Sciences understands that human and intellectual diversity is paramount to academic excellence. As a college, we understand that our commitment to diversity is a shared responsibility among our faculty, staff, students, alumni, and others who are part of the community. We are committed to building and expanding individual and organizational efforts that foster respect, dignity, fairness, caring, equity, and self-esteem. We recruit and retain, on a nondiscriminatory basis, people who are members of groups that have been historically underrepresented in higher education. Our goal is to create an inclusive and diverse environment that fosters excellence in all aspects of our mission.
