Diversity Statement

Physical Chemistry Supergroup
Physical Chemistry Supergroup

The Princeton University Department of Chemistry is committed to providing an open and supportive learning environment for all students, faculty, and staff. As a community, we respect the dignity, individuality, and freedom of each member. At the same time, we strive to be a place where individuals and groups learn with and from each other. We aim to foster a sense of shared experience and common purpose, along with a collective responsibility for each other's well-being and for the well-being of the department as a whole.

The Department of Chemistry is also committed to providing an environment that is free from all forms of discrimination, harassment, exploitation, or intimidation.  Academic rigor and intellectual exchange of scientific ideas are integral parts of development as an independent scientist. All exchanges amongst members of the department must be done in a respectful manner and with understanding of the diversity of backgrounds within the community.  

Princeton University aims to extend to each member of the community the resources necessary to achieve the highest levels of distinction in their work and research.

These goals and values echo statements from campus-wide efforts. In the following webpages you will find information and resources that support these efforts.
