The Department of Psychology is committed to advancing a diverse and intellectually engaging environment. We embrace the differences among our colleagues and believe that our success as scholars, educators, and citizens relies on learning from the experiences we all bring. We strive to maintain an inclusive, respectful community that fosters collaboration and shared responsibility.

As an educational department and a place of employment and research, we endeavor to create opportunities for all students, working professionals, faculty, and staff to reach their full potential educationally and professionally. We believe that justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion are key to doing this. 

We are committed to eliminating racism and other forms of discrimination, retaliation, and harassment in our department. We have zero tolerance for racism and discrimination of any type and sexual harassment and misconduct.
