The MCDB DEI website, linked above, explains our mission, events, our blog and more!


MCDB is committed to providing an inclusive and supportive campus environment for all members of the Michigan community, irrespective of gender, ethnicity, background, or socio-economic status.

As a department, we participate in promoting the next generation of biology faculty through programs such as:

UM President’s Postdoctoral Fellowship program

LSA Collegiate Postdoctoral Fellowship program

LSA NextProf Science Workshop

We are active in organizations that bring more people to science and support those in STEM programs such as:

Developing Future Biologists



MCDB organizes an annual Graduate Program Preview event to recruit a consistently diverse and talented applicant pool for graduate study.

In total, we pursue a DEI mission to advance MCDB by promoting diversity and inclusivity.
