In October of 1999, then-Dean Daniel Larson formed a committee charged with the task of assessing the climate within the Eberly College of Science as a place to work and study. The information gathered since then has been used to further the college’s vision of providing a supportive and welcoming environment in which all of its diverse members can carry out their individual missions of research, service, teaching, and learning. The committee is charged by the dean to assess and improve the climate of the Eberly College of Science as a place to work and study. Committee members represent every area of the college and consist of faculty, staff, and student members. In addition to the college committee, each department has a committee to address issues at the departmental level.
The Eberly College of Science is a vibrant scientific and educational community, open and welcoming, creative and adaptable, renowned for excellence in research and teaching and for improving the world through our students, our discoveries, and our inventions.
To achieve this vision, the Eberly College of Science strives to provide access to rich education, research, and employment experiences that will motivate and enable all of our students, faculty, and staff to seek the highest levels of intellectual achievement and personal growth. Our intellectual strength and diversity will be paralleled and enriched by our demographic diversity and by the way in which we create an inclusive and sustaining climate for everyone.
