Statement of Values

The Department of Psychology is committed to achieving excellence in research, teaching and clinical practice. In pursuit of this mission, we embrace the core values of equity, diversity and inclusivity.

We value a climate of critical thought and rigorous scientific process that recognizes and respects indigenous rights and the diversity of human experience. These include the many intersecting ways people differ, such as ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, socio-economic status, country of origin, disability, culture and religion, and academic level.

We value integrating these and other diverse perspectives into our Department’s culture, and fostering research and mentorship opportunities that support equitable, inclusive outreach and research.
