Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

Our lab actively works to be anti-racist and is engaged in community organizations that are devoted to reducing human suffering and improving health equity for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, as well as LGBTQIA+ individuals. We wholeheartedly appreciate the role of diversity in research and training. We are committed to increasing diversity and inclusion of all racial, ethnic, sexual, and gender underrepresented groups in our research and in our lab.

The UNM Psychology Department Diversity Committee is engaged in many activities to increase diversity, inclusion, and equity at UNM. Please read our statement regarding recent events and our commitment to work toward making the UNM Psychology Department a safe and fulfilling place for all of us to learn and work.
