2021 President's Updates
Please join us in celebration and recognition of our first USPA Diversity statement - Cathy Wilson, USPA President: "Diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) are essential elements of scientific discovery and innovative engineering solutions. The USPA is therefore committed to DEI for all; welcoming differences in race, color, religion, economic status, age, national origin, disability, gender identity, or sexual orientation. The USPA Board of Directors, officers and members will stand and work together with all who strive to eliminate the challenges, barriers and exclusionary practices faced by underrepresented peoples. We will achieve this by promoting a safe and inclusive environment for all people to participate in USPA activities and leadership, and especially by welcoming and partnering with indigenous communities who live in the northern and permafrost regions that are the focus of our science and engineering."
