Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Jefferson Students and Staff at the National Student Leadership Diversity Convention

The College of Life Sciences is committed to nurturing an inclusive community of learners and teachers. Science and discovery does not happen in a vacuum and solutions to complex scientific questions are best discovered through a unique blend of diverse cultures, experiences, ideas, and identities. It is through this approach that we foster an innovative and creative environment for our students and postdoctoral fellows as they develop into independent scientists, clinicians and leaders in their respective fields.
