Welcome to IBA at Vanderbilt!

Our Mission

Advocates for diversity, proponents of inclusion.


Due to existing inequities in STEM fields, Inclusivity in the Biosciences Association (IBA) seeks to effect change in the field of biological sciences. We promote diversity and inclusion in biology, bring attention to inequities within our own institution, engage with the public on science, and foster connections with other organizations in working towards equality and equity in science and beyond.

To this end, we have organized and participated in diverse initiatives including symposiums that promote inclusivity and education outreach – see more of what we do!
