The Department of Biology at Saint Louis University believes that protecting and promoting biological and social diversity is central to our mission of understanding biology through research, critical thinking, and life-long learning.
Diversity, in all of its forms, perpetuates vigorous and creative research and educational environments, nurtures new ideas that serve humanity and the planet we inhabit, and creates an adaptable faculty and student body capable of persevering through and emerging from adversity. We hope to achieve this diversity by recruiting and welcoming faculty, staff and students representing all human identities, including race, religion, gender, sexual preference, nationality, age, and ability.
