Our Commitment to Diversity

Efforts to promote diversity and inclusion, respect groups and their individual members for their unique qualities, and monitor and challenge bias are essential to pursuit of knowledge, beneficial to our scientific community, and fundamental to the values of our department.

The Yale Psychology Department seeks to create an inclusive, welcoming, and diverse learning and professional environment for all students, postdoctoral fellows, staff, and faculty, and is committed to the recruitment and retention of members of underrepresented groups. Diversity (including but not limited to issues of gender, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, disability status, socioeconomic status, and religion) is integral to research, teaching, clinical training, and other central intellectual activities in the department.

The department is committed to achieving, maintaining, and promoting the highest standards for an inclusive science, practice, and community. Empowering scholars of diverse backgrounds and supporting research with diverse populations are key to both the quality of science and the vitality of departmental community.
