Howland EDI Statement

The Howland Lab is engaged in training good scientists through a focus on behavioural neurosciences, strong communicators and collaborators, and a community of good people. We are committed to fostering an inclusive and diverse research environment by giving equal opportunities to trainees, encouraging direct collaboration, and paying all for research contribution, including a living wage for graduate students. By advocating for students, we hope to enable participation by all. We value and respect the unique perspectives and contributions of every individual and believe that a diverse team enhances creativity, innovation, and scientific rigor. Through formal meetings and informal interactions, we commit to discussing and addressing these issues in greater depth and learning from one another.


Howland Land Acknowledgment

We recognize the importance of acknowledging where we live, work, and recreate. The University of Saskatchewan was established in 1907 on Treaty 6 territory, the traditional lands of Métis and First Nations Cree, Dakota, Dene (Chipewyan), Nakota (Assiniboine), and Saulteaux communities. We are grateful for the land and the grounding impact it has on us as visitors. We extend our gratitude to the elders, past and present, for their wisdom, knowledge, and teachings which continue to enrich our understanding of this land and its history. We commit to acknowledging our ignorance and priviledge, and furthering our education regarding this history.
