UCI BioSci is committed to create an inclusive community and climate that supports the growth and success of every School citizen through our eight cultural principles.
The culture we desire. The culture we deserve.
BioSci faculty, staff and graduate students worked diligently for two years on a remarkable process facilitated by our friends at Partnership Advantage to create these 8 Cultural Principles. Our goal was to create, introduce and foster a school culture we both desire and deserve.
We value diverse perspectives and commit to civil discourse.
We do what is right, even when it is difficult or no one is looking.
We commit to maintaining a collegial environment where everyone feels safe.
We set high standards and recognize both individual and collective achievement.
We embrace diversity, uphold equity, and actively promote inclusion.
We work together and encourage collaboration.
We strive to innovate, bravely take action, and learn from our mistakes.
We hold ourselves and others responsible for our actions.
