About the Chemistry DEI Committee

Our DEI committee will look to implement evidence-based practices as they apply across all areas of department life, including hiring practices, student recruitment and retention, pedagogy, community building, community outreach, etc.

DEI sub-committees

The Chemistry DEI committee consists of faculty, graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, staff and undergraduate students serving on one of three subcommittees:

  1. Providing DEI training and accountability: implicit bias, anti-racism, sensitivity, etc…
  2. Creating DEI throughout the department: hiring faculty/staff; recruitment/retention of students; affinity groups; etc…
  3. Emphasizing DEI across the curriculum: seminar speakers; instruction/course structure; course content; accountability; etc…
