Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry DEIR Committee Statement on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Respect
An accessible and DEIR-centered education is a key tenant of a free society. We seek to provide means to success and remove barriers to access so each individual can reach their ultimate professional potential. Our students will be faced with solving current and future challenges, and they will need to draw from the wisdom and knowledge of a global ecosystem to solve problems in new ways. Our success as a department relies on our ability to welcome, engage, and respect the perspectives of all our students, staff, and faculty. We invite and encourage all willing individuals to join us in the pursuit of scientific solutions to the important problems we face. As educators and leaders in our professional disciplines, we have a responsibility to foster an environment that drives necessary and positive changes.
The Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Respect committee is comprised of faculty, staff, and graduate students in the department of Chemistry and Biochemistry. We encourage input from the UCCS Chemistry and Biochemistry community. You can email us with any comments, questions, or concerns.
