Department of Genetics Diversity Statement

The Genetics Department at the University of Georgia is committed to diversity in all its forms. We strive to cultivate an inclusive environment, and to promote the success of scholars of all racial and socioeconomic groups, religious and cultural backgrounds, gender identities, sexual orientations, national origins, and disability statuses. We believe all people deserve equity in education and that the best science is done with a diverse and inclusive scientific workforce. As a community of students, postdoctoral associates, staff, and faculty, we do our best as scientists when we bring together multiple perspectives to address fundamental and applied questions in genetics and aligned fields. We work diligently to maintain a department where all scholars can thrive, free from discrimination, bigotry, inequity, harassment, or violence of any kind.
