COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION
"I am you and what I see is me”
~ Echoes , Pink Flyod
At OCEEMlab, we practice diversity, equity, and inclusivity daily by working collaboratively and promoting outreach activities to convey our research to diverse communities in Austin’s greater area. We work with students, staff, and faculty regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, language, abilities/disabilities, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, or country of origin. We actively assist UTIG’s national/international students from different backgrounds to better adjust to UT educational system. This includes mentoring students from underrepresented communities to enhance their studying capabilities, skill-building, and personal growth via informal and formal activities. The lab members of OCEEMlab are keen to help international students overcome the hurdles of acclimating to a new society and education structure. We strive to improve students’ integration and lead toward a more productive and enjoyable studying experience. If you need advice or support with either academic or non-academic issues, feel free to stop by our office, the door is always open to help in any way we can.
