Diversity, Inclusion, Belonging, and Equity

HSCRB is dedicated to building a diverse and inclusive environment for learning and working. We recognize that historically underrepresented groups in academia play an integral part in the department’s two-fold mission of exceptional education and cutting-edge research. We believe that global problems necessitate global solutions, and that global means everyone.

At HSCRB, we strive to attract and retain individuals from diverse backgrounds. Through community initiatives, feedback, and training, we are intentionally creating an environment where all our members are empowered to thrive. Building this culture is vital to our department’s continued growth and success.
