Engagement

Our students, trainees, faculty, staff, alumni and community members are valued partners who provide essential perspective and context for how we more forthrightly address racism, other forms of discrimination and health inequities as we continue to work to turn meaningful dialogue into action and engagement.

School of Medicine Inclusion Council

Established in November 2020, the School of Medicine Inclusion Council is a pivotal leadership forum that brings together representatives from across our school’s community to create and sustain a structure for school-level dialogue on issues related to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI). The council serves as a sounding board for School of Medicine community members and brings actionable ideas and initiatives to leadership for implementation.
