Mission & Vision

Mission
The Office of Diversity and Inclusion serves as the Provost’s proponent for diversity and cultural competence among students, faculty, and staff on the Medical Campus. We accomplish this mission through collaboration with all departments to develop model recruitment and retention strategies and for curriculum and faculty development.

Vision
Our vision is to lead medical schools in diversity of faculty, students, staff and trainees by developing programs to educate, recruit, and retain a multicultural constituency. We foster an environment that demonstrates our belief that diversity adds value to intellectual development, academic discourse, patient care, and research. We believe that diversity is essential to the development of future leaders in healthcare and research to serve our community, nation, and world.
