We are a community open to all faculty, staff, and students who believe in the importance of diversity in research, teaching, and service. To foster opportunities for underrepresented individuals and their allies, we seek to implement departmental policies and promote a culture that adheres to the following three tenets:
CONNECT: We will build bridges between the Psychology Department, other academic departments, off-campus diversity advocates, and the greater Utah community to spark conversation and learn from one another. We believe that open and empathetic dialogue between people with different intellectual and personal backgrounds cultivates compassion and raises awareness for important issues in diversity.
ENGAGE: After bridges are formed, they must be strengthened and maintained. We will sustain these relationships by supporting our department’s active participation in the diversification of research, teaching, and service. As a product of this engagement, we will contribute to the advancement of science as well as the broad communication and integration of our research findings and teaching practices.
THRIVE: We believe that creating a vibrant, well-connected community of diverse scholars will enable us to thrive as a department. We aspire to create an environment in which all individuals can reach their full potential, ultimately enriching the quality of our intellectual work and promoting further connection and engagement.
Our goal is to build bridges between:
- The Psychology Department,
- other academic departments,
- off-campus diversity advocates,
- and the greater Utah community
In order to spark conversation and learn from one another.
We believe that open and empathetic dialogue between people with different intellectual and personal backgrounds can:
- cultivates compassion
- raises awareness
for important issues in diversity in our community.
