Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity and inclusion are very important to BCMB. A diverse student body enriches the program by providing different points of view and enhancing creative solutions to scientific problems. We provide support at many levels to our students to ensure that they are productive and engaged. Inclusion is a value that is essential to this support and to achieving a diverse community. 

The BCMB graduate program actively recruits students with disabilities. Prospective and current graduate students with a disability who may need accommodations are encouraged to contact the Disabilities Services Coordinator for graduate students in the School of Medicine to discuss their specific needs.
