Committee co-Chairs Sue McConnell and Kabir Peay, along with the Department Chair, Martha Cyert, outline a plan to address issues of diversity, equity and inclusion in the Biology Department.


Information on the latest Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB) news will be distributed to the Biology department on a quarterly basis. Read the Fall 2020 newsletter here.
