We believe diversity and inclusion drive creativity and that collaboration among people with different experiences and backgrounds enhance our science. A central tenant of CSENND is to encourage different perspectives and approaches while continually working to promote an exciting, inclusive environment where students and faculty alike are empowered to bring their whole selves to their research. To foster this environment, resources from the Center for the Improvement of Mentored Experiences in Research are being used in student training.
Here are some materials related to professional development and creation of an inclusive environment created by CSENND that are available for your use.
- Individual Development Plans and SMART Goals
- Diverse Teams Matter
- Cultural Competency & Humility
- Inclusive Participant Introduction Slide Template
- The Pronunciation of Chinese Names
As part of our efforts to build cultural competency and understanding within the center, we are building awareness around different holidays, focusing on those that our center members love to celebrate. These slides are available for external use by student acknowledgement, with new ones being updated periodically.
