Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Diversity Statement

Diversity is a core value of the Department of Physiology & Biophysics. We are committed to creating an academic community of diversity and inclusion, with individuals of all backgrounds, traditions and differences, regardless of race, national origin, religion, gender, age, disability, or sexual orientation. We believe this diversity enhances the outlook and academic richness of our Department’s teaching, mentoring, and research missions. We support Boston University’s statement on diversity.

Commitment to Anti-Racism

The Department of Physiology & Biophysics believes in a diverse and inclusive educational, research, and work environment for all of our students, staff, faculty and visitors. We are choosing specifically to be anti-racist and further to develop our allyship in the community. We commit to creating an environment where all employees and students regardless of race, ancestry, ethnicity, or culture are valued.

We support the division and university initiatives on diversity, equity and inclusion. For more information, please visit these links to GMS, BUSM, and Diversity and Inclusion at BU.
