Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and ICS
The Institute of Cognitive Science understands the importance of inclusion, diversity, and equity to its research and teaching excellence. Inclusion, diversity, and equity in our organization:
- enable faculty, students, staff, and affiliates to reach their full potential
- foster scientific innovation by bringing different perspectives to solving research problems, and
- make Cognitive Science more relevant to humanity’s needs by ensuring the problems to be investigated and solved represent a broad range of people.
The Institute is also aware that overcoming centuries of societal and institutional biases is not easy. ICS is comitted to making inclusion, diversity, and equity an explicit focus of attention, and investing time and resources to create an anti-oppressive, non-discriminatory organization.
