About the Department: The University of Mississippi Department of Biology is committed to creating an environment that fosters diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). This goal has two fundamental motivations: first, it is a moral imperative to critically examine and dismantle systems that allow or enable discrimination, inequity, or exclusion; second, scientific advances depend on novel solutions, creative ideas, and diverse perspectives, all of which are limited if our department does not fully support people from all backgrounds. We acknowledge the legacy and persistence of both overt and institutionalized discrimination based on race, ethnicity, religion, disability, veteran status, sex, gender identity, and sexual orientation.

Our responsibility is to improve policies, procedures, and departmental culture to break down barriers to diversity, equity, and inclusion. As a department, our aims are to cultivate mutual respect, encouragement, and appreciation of every person within our diverse community of faculty, staff, and students and to initiate and promote inclusive and equitable research, education, and outreach efforts. To create such a culture, each of us must invest in learning about and addressing our individual conscious and unconscious assumptions. As such, we will invest in thoughtful and intentional efforts towards these aims.
