Commitment to Diversity
The Department of Bioengineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is dedicated to the integration of groups of diverse cultures, backgrounds, and life experiences. Our Mission is to provide access to inclusive education and showcase how our diverse community provides enriching perspectives to develop creative solutions to real-world challenges. We affirm our commitment to foster a learning environment that encourages open expression within a climate of civility, sensitivity, and mutual respect, so that students, faculty and staff of all backgrounds and perspectives may thrive.
Everitt Lab inclusive spaces
