Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The University of Michigan is truly an outstanding place to live, learn, and grow as a scientist. We are a community that values diversity and our student organizations play an important role in striving to ensure that Michigan continues to maintain a diverse environment. PIBS students come from all over the world, bringing with them a set of talents, achievements, and perspectives that help nurture a supportive and open academic space.
