Our vision for diversity, equity, and inclusion
Commitment by Dr. Hudac and the B-RAD Lab: We are committed to using our science to improve the lives of ALL individuals. This will require addressing racism and systemic injustices. As we restart our laboratory at UofSC, we will be starting with conversations about our goals and commitments to this cause. This will include revisiting and renewing our commitments -- last year (2021-2022), this was our pledge:
For our part:
For our part:
- We strive to provide education on the negative developmental consequences (including implicit biases) of these inequities and injustices. We will educate inside the classroom and within the community at large.

- We will amplify underrepresented voices and efforts in science.
