Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry is committed to diversity and equal opportunity for its students, staff, and faculty. As a Hispanic Serving Institution and an institution that fosters diversity including race, color, sexual orientation, economic background, and/or nationality, we acknowledge that excellence and equity are products of embracing diversity.  Our commitment to an anti-racist and welcoming environment drives us to eliminate real and perceived barriers, enabling us to provide an enriched learning and working academic environment and the necessary resources for success to our entire community.
