Diversity is a source of strength, creativity, and innovation for our Department of Plant Pathology and for the world at large. We value the contributions of each person and respect the profound ways their identity, culture, background, experience, status, abilities, and opinions enrich our university community. We strive to recognize biases within our community and reject actions that diminish an equitable and inclusive environment. We regard the pursuit of excellence in teaching, research, outreach, and diversity as inextricably linked goals.
The Department of Plant Pathology and the University of Wisconsin–Madison fulfill our public mission by creating a welcoming and inclusive community for people from every background — people who as students, faculty, and staff serve Wisconsin and the world.
