Our Values and Expected Conduct

The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory is managed for DOE's Office of Science by Brookhaven Science Associates (BSA).

At Brookhaven Lab, our vision is to enable discovery science and transformative technology that power and secure the nation’s future. Our mission is to deliver expertise and capabilities to drive scientific breakthroughs and innovation for today and tomorrow.

Achieving this vision and mission requires simultaneous excellence in science, laboratory operations, and service to the community. We are committed to making positive impacts for the region, the nation, and the world.

We are committed to treating all in an ethical manner—with respect through common courtesy, civility, and effective communication. We expect to be treated that way in return.

We strive to maintain a diverse, equitable, inclusive, and accessible work environment in which all in the Lab community—including staff, guests, facility users, visitors, students, educators, and contractors—are valued and empowered to work to their fullest potential.

We do not tolerate any form of harassment, discrimination, or retaliation against or by members of the Lab community while working at the Lab site or off, and when representing Brookhaven at meetings, workshops, and other events.

In all we do, we are guided by our values: leadership, integrity, responsibility, innovation, safety, security, and environmental stewardship, respect, and teamwork.

As a Lab community, we work in an environmentally responsible, safe manner and adhere to our Environmental, Safety, Security, and Health Policy.

Through these commitments, we lead and support diverse research teams in support of the DOE's mission to ensure the nation's security and prosperity.

To report conduct or behavior inconsistent with these commitments, please communicate through EthicsPoint, which is hosted by an independent third party.
