Diverse individuals within the sciences are essential to the continued success of the community in its academic pursuits. The Biology Department at Texas A&M embraces this concept and welcomes the advancement of its members by incorporating people from all backgrounds. This is achieved by recruiting talented individuals from all facets of sex, race, gender, ethnicity, language, religion, sexual orientation, geographic region, abilities or disabilities, and socioeconomic status. As in nature, diversity allows for the optimization of the group and creates a stimulating environment. Embracing diversity here at A&M allows for optimization of the intellectual environment made possible by the sharing of ideas of people from a broad demographic.  Each group brings a unique and invaluable perspective and mindset to the science community. This inclusivity of diverse groups in the science community will help shift the disproportionate balance currently being represented here at Texas A&M, which is vital to the future of our intellectual integrity.
