Statements of Diversity

The University of California, Davis values a diversity of viewpoints, backgrounds, and experiences among its graduate student population.  The Integrative Genetics and Genomics graduate group encourages diversity in the application and recruitment process by participating in programs to improve graduate diversity, such as the Initiative for Maximizing Student Development (IMSD) training grant, University of California Office of the President Historically Black Colleges and Universities Initiative, and the College of Biological Sciences Strategic Student Recruitment Plan.  Our admission criteria also include each candidate’s potential for leadership in the university mission for diversity.
