The Department of Biochemistry welcomes and nurtures students and scientists regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, or any other aspect of their identity. We are proud of and embrace the diversity of our community. The value and the richness of experiences and viewpoints that everyone contributes cannot be measured in simple terms but rather in the impact of our diverse community on the scientific and academic success of each and every member of the department.
Globally, attacks against members of marginalized groups are causing fear, anger, and sadness to many. If you are having difficulties, please do not hesitate to reach out to campus resources (links below) or to your faculty advisors/mentors. We as a department and faculty stand with the CWRU Administration in reaffirming that you are welcome here – you are needed here. Together we will keep each other safe and strong as we continue to pursue inquiry and knowledge.
On Behalf of the Department of Biochemistry
