Mission Statement

The Neuroscience Postdoctoral and Graduate Association (NPGA) affirms, supports, and uplifts the value and experiences of every individual, regardless of race, color, orientation, sex, age, disability, citizenship, religion, or other basis. As the Diversity and Inclusion Committee, we aspire to enrich each and every person’s experience, as we strongly believe that increasing inclusion and diversity benefits everyone. Our purpose is to be a source of support for the student, postdoctoral, and researcher communities in the School of Neuroscience, and to provide access to a variety of resources through an information hub. Our mission is to actively promote diversity and inclusion in both the School of Neuroscience and NPGA through our commitments to seek out educational and outreach opportunities, increase awareness, and facilitate conversations with students, researchers and other diverse individuals.
