Statement on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

In the Department of Applied Behavioral Science, we understand that an equitable and safe multiracial, multiethnic, and multicultural environment produces innovative thinking, research, and learning. We seek to provide an environment for learning and working where differences are valued and each person in the ABS community is supported and offered an equitable opportunity – irrespective of national origin, age, sex, health status, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, or ability – to achieve their academic and professional goals. These efforts are led by our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee and are supported by our faculty and staff.
