PAC's mission is to provide an environment that fosters professional advancement through programming, support services, and networking opportunities for all Postdoctoral fellows. Through these activities, we as postdocs will be better able to define our roles in the university and community, allowing us to become successful educators, researchers and professionals.

We are convinced that diversity enriches both the scientific community and society at large, and that the full benefit of this diversity can only be reached if every human being feels safe and welcome in their community. As a postdoctoral community of Boulder, we commit to actively work towards creating a safe environment and equal opportunities for all postdocs, independent of their background, origin, gender, race, sexual orientation and identity, religion, ability, accessibility, and intellectual or socioeconomic status. We commit to use our influence in the scientific community to amplify the voices of underrepresented and historically marginalized groups and to help dismantle institutional racism and discrimination of any sort.
