The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs: Team Diversity Statement

Diversity

We value the unique contributions of all individuals and diversity in all of its forms. We have a strong commitment to building trust and creating inclusive spaces in which each person can experience a sense of belonging. We believe this is the path to academic excellence and innovation.   

We honor individuals’ unique and diverse identities, and we engage with and learn from people from all walks of life. We foster personal and professional growth for the diverse populations we serve. We pride ourselves in modeling fair and equitable practices across all of our programs and activities. At the core of our team’s value system is respect and human dignity for all.  We understand that our individual, diverse backgrounds shape our life experiences—both positive and negative—and we strive to use our personal histories to the advantage of the communities we serve.
