Dept of CBE: Neurodiversity Statement

CBE supports a welcoming, inclusive, and empowering space for neurodivergent students. Neurodiversity describes the breadth of differences in neurological wiring that make up the population; some examples of neurodivergent conditions are ADHD, autism, Tourette’s syndrome, and OCD. This list is not exhaustive, and any brain-based difference that both associated strengths and challenges is considered neurodiversity.
