Statement on diversity

The Department of Viticulture and Enology is committed to building and nurturing a community of inclusion, one that thrives on diversity, equity and equality. The foundation of our community is respect for each other and for that which makes us different.  The discovery,  innovation, and application of new knowledge for which we are known internationally derives from the vibrancy and connectedness of our diverse and extended community of current and former students, staff, industry and faculty members. We embrace the UCD Principles of Community and “confront and reject all manifestations of discrimination."
