Thurstone Lab Code of Conduct

We believe that good science does not just benefit from, but indeed requires, diversity. Scientists and trainees from diverse backgrounds and life experiences bring different perspectives, creativity, and individual ingenuity to address complex scientific problems. No group should ever be oppressed or discouraged from practicing science simply because of their identity (or intersectional identities).

Our Code of Conduct [PDF] outlines the L.L. Thurstone Psychometric Laboratory’s code of conduct: what we expect from our affiliates, what behaviors support inclusion and diversity, what sorts of behaviors we prohibit, and what kinds of reporting resources exist in situations when these rules are broken.

Importantly, we acknowledge that a commitment to equity does not just mean creating safe and inclusive spaces, but also means supporting students with different backgrounds in their learning and work. If you are a student in the Lab, please speak with your Faculty Adviser and the Lab Director about support in finding funding, employment, or other academic, professional, and health resources.
