NPB Diversity Mission Statement

With the recognition that one of UC Davis’ core missions is to provide educational opportunities for all students, encompassing diversity in gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic, racial and ethnic backgrounds, citizenship, pregnancy status, mental or physical disabilities, and many more categories (see our Statement of Nondiscrimination for details), we in the Department of Neurobiology, Physiology, and Behavior affirm our commitment to increasing participation by underrepresented groups in our undergraduate student body, our undergraduate research assistants, our graduate student body, our postdoctoral associates, our faculty, and our staff. Our goals are to provide a safe and equitable environment and to create and maintain a culture of support and inclusion of underrepresented members in our department.


NPB Equity Advisors


The Equity Advisors act as liaisons between NPB and the campus and interpret and work to implement policies that relate to equity and inclusion. The Equity Advisors serve as departmental consultants in faculty searches, advancement and retention, and creating/maintaining a departmental climate for equity and inclusion.


Reporting Incidents of Intolerance or Harassment


As reflected in our Principles of Community, at UC Davis we are committed to confronting and rejecting “all manifestations of discrimination, including those based on race, ethnicity, gender, age, (dis)ability, sexual orientation, religious or political beliefs, status within or outside the university, or any of the other differences among people which have been excuses for misunderstanding, dissension or hatred.” Accordingly, UC Davis strives to maintain an inclusive and diverse work and learning environment free of hate and bias.

If you believe you have experienced or witnessed an act of hate, bias, discrimination or harassment, please report it so the university can take appropriate action.
