Singh Center for Nanotechnology Statement of Diversity

The Singh Center for Nanotechnology, also known as the Mid-Atlantic Nanotechnology Hub (MANTH), is one of the 16 sites funded by the National Science Foundation National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure initiative.   The Singh Center leadership, staff, students and its community of users work towards the values expressed in the NNCI Diversity Statement.

The NNCI embraces diversity and welcomes, recruits, educates, employs, serves, and engages a diverse group of users, students, faculty, and staff with a wide variety of backgrounds, perspectives, interests, and talents, creating a community of teachers, learners, and researchers that exemplifies the best in all of us – in our intellectual pursuits, our diversity of thought, our personal integrity, and our commitment to excellence.

We believe that diversity includes the individual differences among people, including:

  • Gender
  • Social, racial, or ethnic backgrounds
  • Disabilities or handicaps
  • Socioeconomic class
  • Gender identity or expression
  • Sexual orientation
  • Appearance or personal characteristics
  • Political affiliation and opinion
  • Language
  • Religion or beliefs
  • Economic circumstances
  • Philosophical outlooks
  • Veteran status
  • Life experiences

All of these characteristics, both singularly and in combination, contribute to the richness of the NNCI community.
