The Creation and Integration of Knowledge through Scholarly Research, Entrepreneurship, and Innovation
We believe that our research in GRASP is better with a diverse team in a collaborative environment. We embrace and encourage our lab members’ differences in age, disability, ethnicity, family or marital status, gender identity or expression, language, national origin, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, veteran status, and other characteristics that make our lab members who they are. In recognition of the importance of collaboration, we do not abide intolerance, disrespectful or hurtful behavior.
