The Department of Chemistry at New York University recognizes diversity, in all forms, as a central pillar of excellence in science and science education. We strive to provide a supportive and inclusive environment where opportunities in chemical education and research are offered equitably to all individuals independent of their race, ethnicity, skin color, sex or gender identity, sexual orientation, creed, socioeconomic status, national origin or disabilities.
Aligned with NYU’s commitment to building a more inclusive community, the Department of Chemistry is committed to:
- Fostering intellectual inquiry and research practices that respectfully and rigorously take account of a wide range of opinions, perspectives, and experiences;
- Promoting an environment in which every member feels they have a rightful place, is welcome and respected, and is supported in their endeavors;
- Developing and supporting programs and policies that measurably improve NYU's record of attracting and retaining students, as well as hiring and promoting faculty, administrators, and staff from historically underrepresented communities.
Consonant with the educational mission of the Department, members of our community also support and participate in outreach activities aimed at making chemistry, and science in general, more accessible to the broader community.
