The Division of Nutritional Sciences (DNS) is committed to an inclusive environment that treats all individuals with fairness, dignity, and respect. We celebrate and value diversity in race, ethnicity, religious and spiritual beliefs, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, age, mental and physical ability, and country of origin. Our pedagogy, scholarship and outreach are enriched and informed by the exchange of diverse perspectives and experiences. We uphold an environment free of racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, and systemic oppression in all its forms.
The members of the Division will lead efforts to support diversity, equity and inclusion in our community of scholarship and in our discipline. We will engage with students, staff, and faculty to meet collective goals that are actionable and that reinforce our long-standing dedication to social justice. Our community will be strengthened by these efforts, which enhance the mission of the Division to improve nutrition and human health around the globe.
