Climate Overview

Students in classroom

Illinois Chemistry strives to create a research and teaching environment that values human dignity. It embraces the idea that all individuals are scientists who should bring their whole selves to science. We recognize that every person has a cultural background that informs their passion for science and that background needs to be accepted, accommodated and intentionally included.

The department has formed a climate committee and has multiple department climate initiatives, both of which you may find more information about in the side-menu. Also in the side-menu you will find the Climate and Diversity Action Plan and Community Values & Expectations links. We have also included a link so that you may report harassment.
