The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering is dedicated to fostering an inclusive, diverse, and welcoming environment for faculty, staff, and students. We recognize the value and experience of individuals of different backgrounds.
We are fortunate to be part of a historical, diverse, and vibrant community within Baltimore and are dedicated to integrating community members and views in our department. To this end, we encourage faculty, staff, students, and community members to reach out with questions, concerns, and comments.
