The NatSci-DEI Website is a great place to find a comprehensive list of MSU and external DEI related information for students, faculty and staff. Also available are the findings from the MSU Climate Survey conducted in 2019. A summary report was presented to the BMB faculty and staff in early 2021. The BMB DEI Committee members are identifying how to focus departmental efforts on improving the Climate and Culture in BMB.
BMB formed an ad-hoc DEI Committee in spring 2020 to create a more inclusive and welcoming climate within the department and address issues of recruitment and retention. We are also working on tracking DEI demographics and improving Career-Life Balance resources to better serve our department members.
