Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Cultivating a diverse, equitable and inclusive environment is essential in fulfilling our mission to improve the quality of health care for humanity, and we are committed to engaging in dialogue across the breadth of our community to fuel our actions.
We reaffirm the core values of human dignity and of mutual, unconditional respect, and we acknowledge our responsibility to condemn racism and all forms of discrimination.
We continuously strive for our workplace and learning environment to reflect the demographic and social milieu of the communities we serve, to advocate for these principles beyond our walls and to be a place of dignity, professionalism, mutual respect and inclusivity.
“Diversity, equity and inclusion is a team sport. As a collective, we will make the difference,” says Kevin Harris, Ph.D., interim senior associate dean for diversity, equity and inclusion for the School of Medicine.
