The promotion of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is a key goal and we believe integral to our long-term success as a department. We have continued important initiatives and created new ones in order to promote these goals. These include, the group for listening about inclusiveness, diversity and equity (BU-CHE-GLIDE), BU Women in Chemistry (BUWIC) and initiatives in recruiting faculty, graduate students and mentoring undergraduates with diverse backgrounds.
