Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology (MCD) Diversity Committee
The Department of Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology (MCD) embraces the UCSC principles of community. The MCD Diversity Committee is composed of 12 MCD community members who have a unified mission of creating and promoting a fair and equitable working environment for all students, postdoctoral researchers, staff, and faculty. We have volunteered to be members of this committee as we share a passion for promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts (DEI). We are especially focused on implementing and advocating for the recommendations centered on core issues of undergraduate and graduate training, faculty, accountability, seminars, and hiring that emerged from the MCD division working groups during 2020.
