Office for Inclusion

Our vision is for diversity and inclusion be a conscious part of how we all do our work; and that behavior and actions supporting diversity and inclusion will come from every employee.

Our goal is to continually strive to achieve a more inclusive environment where creative energy and a variety of insights result from a diverse environment, and are a vital to the intellectual rigor and social fabric of the university. A scholarly community, the Health Sciences welcomes people of all racial, ethnic, cultural, socioeconomic, national and international backgrounds, encouraging diversity of thought, pedagogy, experience, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, political affiliation, and disability. The academic community believes in a culture of inclusion that encourages relationships and interactions among people of different backgrounds.
