Community Values

The Mansueto Institute recognizes the value of diversity, respect and the free exchange of ideas in the urban scientific enterprise. We also recognize our shared responsibility in upholding these values, which must benefit the entire Mansueto Institute community including faculty, students, staff and visitors. Specifically, we are committed to:

  • Scientific integrity: We aspire to the highest professional and ethical standards of conduct in our research, management of that research, instruction, and communications.
  • Respectful interactions: We respect each person and seek to nurture the broad spectrum of views that are essential for scientific research, scholarship and learning. Each individual’s contributions will be welcome and treated with civility. We strive to create the kind of collegial, interdisciplinary and inclusive environment that promotes innovation and excellent science.
  • Welcoming climate: We strive to create a non-hierarchical, creative environment in which all members our community feel comfortable, protected from harassment and free from inappropriate behavior.
  • Diversity & inclusion: We strive for an inclusive environment that embraces the differences inherent in a diverse community. Diversity includes race, ethnicity, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability status, age, cultural background, nationality, military status, financial status, discipline or field, career experience, and any other dimension of our humanity.

Anyone who has concerns about behavior inconsistent with our community values should contact Anne Dodge, acdodge@uchicago.edu.
