Our Mission

The Diversity and Inclusion Office encourages and supports the educational and working environment of students, faculty, and staff in order to have a positive effect on the health experiences of diverse communities. Consequently, the Diversity and Inclusion Office will support and promote all research efforts that recognize and value diversity and inclusion as a tool to reduce health inequities and improve the health of historically marginalized and underserved populations.

Diversity and equity are essential to the development of future leaders in healthcare and research; they enrich intellectual development, academic discourse, patient care, and research. Our office commits to developing innovative programs that educate, recruit, and retain a diverse, multicultural community of faculty, students, staff, and trainees.
