Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

The Department of Entomology values the contributions of each person and strives to make each interaction matter. We are committed to engaging in practices that demonstrate the value of diversity and inclusive excellence. We succeed through a collegial, inclusive, enthusiastic department where we value respect for all, work/life balance, team and multidisciplinary collaborations, and shared accomplishments.

We Strive to Be Intentional, Accountable and Reflective

Our Programs

We encourage participation in a number of programs and resources that help inform and advance our commitment to diversity and inclusion.

Our Actions

Our personnel and programs strive to provide the leadership to effectively deal with differing ideas and views to enable them to interact with diverse people and cultures in meaningful and constructive ways. We are also actively looking for people who will contribute to the diversity of the Department of Entomology community. We strongly encourage applications for faculty, staff, and administrator positions from groups who are underrepresented in the Department of Entomology.
