To achieve excellence across all biomedical and STEM disciplines, we are committed to cultivating a safe and inclusive research and learning environment for all — free of mistreatment, harassment and discrimination.
Key components of safe learning environments include publishing guidelines for reporting adverse incidents, hosting regular workshops and trainings, and implementing safe learning policies. These structures contribute to an inclusive environment where all members of the SDM community can achieve their greatest potential.
The following schools have partnered together to foster safe and inclusive learning environments:
This project was funded by a supplement (“Safe and Inclusive Biomedical and Behavioral Research Training Environments at UB”, 2 R25 GM 095459-09S1) to the Initiative for Maximizing Student Development Award (5R25GM095459-10) from the National Institute of General Medical Science (NIGMS) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to the University at Buffalo.
This award supports research, mentoring and professional development of doctoral graduate students underrepresented in biomedical and behavioral science.
