Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The Department of Chemistry values diversity and is committed to maintaining a supportive and inclusive climate. We value diversity in all forms, including but not limited to national origin, language, race, color, disability, ethnicity, sex, age, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status, veteran status, educational background, and family structures. We conduct all departmental activities, including recruitment, retention, and personal and professional development for a diverse group of faculty, postdoctoral fellows, staff, and graduate and undergraduate students in a manner consistent with these values.


We need you!  There are lots of ways that you can help improve diversity, equity, and inclusion at the University of Iowa and within the field of chemistry.  Below is a list of resoures that can help you get started on your journey.
