The Department of Botany and Plant Pathology promotes Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging. We will advance diversity and inclusiveness in all facets of the department so that every department member feels valued, respected, and confident in their pursuits. We view diversity in thought, background, and experience as core elements of our department. The DEIB committee leads efforts to educate and engage our community by demonstrating the value that emerges from diversity in culture, race, religion, age, sex/gender, sexual orientation and disability.
