Our mission and values:  In the Orrock Lab, our goal is to catalyze new scientific discoveries by cultivating an environment where people with diverse perspectives feel welcome, valued, and free to share their passion for ecology. We value diversity, integrity, hard work, communication, creativity, and collaboration. We welcome potential students regardless of race, gender identity, sexual orientation, or background. We work together to create an inclusive group where all members are free to share and discuss their ideas in an open, supportive environment where trust and respect are paramount.
