Climate and Diversity
in the Eberly College of Science

Climate is the word we use to describe the atmosphere in the college. How does it feel to be a member of our college? We strive to create a welcoming and supportive environment in which each member can achieve their fullest potential.

In October of 1999, Dean Larson formed a committee charged with the task of assessing the climate within the Eberly College of Science as a place to work and study.
The information gathered since then has been used to further the college’s vision of providing a supportive and welcoming environment in which all of its diverse members can carry out their individual missions of research, service, teaching and learning.
