The Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics is committed to the pursuit of scientific excellence through rigorous research and training to improve epidemiological and biostatistical methods and public health policy and practice, including excellence in teaching and mentoring the next generation of researchers. Members are expected to engage in ethical research and, through research and community engagement, build the evidence base to responsibly promote health in the populations they serve. The Department is committed to openness and transparency in our research and teaching.
The Department aims to maintain a diverse and inclusive community in which all members feel safe and comfortable, regardless of status or rank. Diversity and inclusivity require respect for and constructive engagement with people who differ in gender identity, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, national origin, culture, religion, age, and physical ability.
Open communication is essential to enacting and maintaining these values.
