Diversity Education & Research

We embrace a broad view of diversity that includes, but is not limited to, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, ability, language, culture, religious practices, socioeconomic background, and life experiences. 


We develop innovative structured programs and initiatives to attract and retain students and faculty from underrepresented backgrounds.


We provide a nurturing and supportive environment to cultivate the next generation of diverse leaders in medicine, biomedical research, and public health.
