We celebrate diversity in higher education, which enriches the educational experience for all of us, individually and collectively, by promoting the free exchange of ideas and experiences. The NGP is committed to promoting a shared inclusive understanding of diversity by creating and maintaining a welcoming climate for our student body and workforce. This commitment enhances our mission in neuroscience research and teaching by fostering an environment where different and unique perspectives are highly valued and in which open discourse leads to greater understanding of brain injury and complex neurological, psychiatric, and developmental disorders. The NGP faculty and students are actively engaged in the community and we participate in all manner of university and national organizations that foster and value diversity.
