The Department of Psychology at Rutgers University, New Brunswick is committed to promoting diversity and cultivating an equitable and inclusive environment for our students, staff, and faculty. We strive to foster an environment that respects and affirms the dignity, value, and uniqueness of all individuals, communities, and perspectives (including, but not limited to, gender identity and expressions, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, age, nationality and socioeconomic status).
Within the Department, our efforts to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion are led by our Diversity and Climate Steering Committee and the newly established Advisory Board. The Department’s efforts to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion include:
1. Supporting Inclusive Scholarship and Teaching
2. Recruiting, Retaining, and Developing a Diverse Community
3. Increasing Transparency
4. Increasing Accountability
This commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion is part of a broader effort at Rutgers, New Brunswick that includes resources such as fellowship programs, social and cultural affinity groups, and funding opportunities for diversity innovation.
