Mission & Diversity Statement

Mission Statement

Diversity Statement

The Department of Psychology is committed to creating and sustaining a diverse, inclusive, and nondiscriminatory environment. To this end, we are mindful of sociocultural systems of privilege and oppression based on age, disability, ethnicity and race, gender, gender identity, geography, relationship and parental status, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, spiritual practice, and other dimensions of diversity. We firmly believe that excellence is best promoted by recruiting and retaining diverse groups of students, faculty, and staff and by insuring that the department’s culture is supportive and respectful of all members.
