Creating an Inclusive Environment

Our department strives to be an inclusive environment where everyone feels safe, valued, listened to, respected, and treated fairly. Behaviors of individuals can impact the climate of the department and one of the first steps to help with this issue is to foster an understanding of these behaviors and to address them. One strategy to address these issues is to establish clear expectations with students, faculty and staff, which can avoid misunderstandings and conflict. This can be done at the department level or within individual labs through things like codes of conduct or group expectation documents.

Below are some examples of how to address issues related to power dynamics, microaggressions, privilege and intersectionality:
