SEBS/NJAES Commitment to Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

The Rutgers School of Environmental and Biological Sciences (SEBS) and the Rutgers New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station (NJAES) are committed to actively addressing justice, equity,  diversity, and inclusion by looking both inward at our own community and outward to how we educate, serve, and empower others.

Our vision to support environmental sustainability and human wellness through science-backed research and outreach is only achievable by acknowledging and addressing unequal access to resources due to discrimination and structural inequalities.

As we grapple with solutions to address myriad concerns—climate change, loss of species, obesity, access to nature, etc.—we seek to be part of a just future that makes access to environmental and health resources equally available and culturally appropriate to all.
