Commitment to Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
Faculty and staff in the Department of Biology and Institute of Biochemistry are committed to promoting equity, diversity, and inclusion in our programs. We recognize and celebrate the diversity and lived experiences of our students. We aspire for our classrooms and research groups to be supportive and affirming spaces for all people regardless of their race, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, culture, religion, and socioeconomic status. We are committed to listening and learning how to best support our diverse student population.
Most importantly, this statement represents the beginning of an important and ongoing discussion occurring within our units. We will update this statement in the coming weeks and months as we develop plans for concrete actions to implement change.
Explore the Institute
The aim of biochemistry is to understand and explain the operation of living systems through a study of their chemical, molecular, and cellular properties. In the post-genomic era, discoveries in biochemistry are transforming medicine, agriculture, and industry.
The biochemistry programs at Carleton are also an excellent option for students considering applying to medicine and other health sciences professional programs. A degree in biochemistry will give you the tools to succeed in the 21st century.
