Diversity and Inclusion

Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

The Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Arkansas is committed to promoting equality, diversity and inclusion in all our research and educational endeavors. We strongly feel that creating an environment that values and respects diversity in all its forms helps in cultivating biomedical engineers who can champion grand challenges in human health with empathy and inclusion.
