The Stillman Laboratory is committed to being a safe, supportive, and anti-racist environment in which students from diverse racial, ethnic, gender, sexuality, socio-economic, and other backgrounds are equally and inclusively supported in their education and training. We strive to eliminate unconscious biases, micro-agressions, and other forms of unintended discrimination through sustained communication, empathy, continuous learning and understanding.
The Stillman Laboratory is a safe and supportive environment for students from all walks of life. We provide excellent training and resources to enhance the professional opportunities of those from underrepresented minority groups.
