The Lynn Lab values Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion


We are committed to achieving full participation within an inclusive university environment that strives to meet the needs of all students, faculty and staff in our community. We accept that our collective success depends on the linked pursuits of research, teaching, and service, each building on and reinforcing the other, and commit speaking up, both in celebration of constructive action or with concern for injustice, in response to events that occur in our shared community. 

We recognize that only through active engagement will we be able to be a part of a community striving progressively for inclusive excellence in our future.
