Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The Department of Chemistry, along with the College of Arts and Sciences, at Michigan Tech believes fostering and maintaining an atmosphere of diversity, equity, and inclusion is essential for building a vibrant and happy community.

As scientists, educators, and leaders it is our responsibility to facilitate and encourage respect for the values and dignity of all students, faculty, staff, and community members through our science, our teaching, and by example.

"There are huge opportunities within the chemistry department; the small student-to-staff and faculty-ratio is advantageous to students involved in world class research, and students are invited and encouraged to explore the world of chemistry beyond the classroom; to name a few."
