Diversity & Inclusion

A diverse and inclusive scientific community

The IU Department of Biology is a community of diverse academic scientists, students, and staff from a wide range of cultures, nationalities, races, and social backgrounds. We are committed to celebrating diversity and inclusion as well as maintaining a culture of respect and kindness. These fundamental values further strengthen the intellectual diversity and core goals we have as scientists and educators.

Our diversity logo is a circular swirl of "stick" people in many colors joining hands.

We are committed to celebrating diversity and inclusion as well as maintaining a culture of respect and kindness.

We at IU Biology affirm this commitment by promoting a welcoming and safe workplace, increasing representation of underrepresented groups in all facets of our department, and vigorously responding to intolerant behaviors or actions. We communicate with respect, encourage discussion, support those who feel marginalized, and promote diversity initiatives from every level of the university. Our goal is to build upon our strengths by encouraging an even more inclusive scientific community and collaborative environment in which all members are empowered and supported.
