Office of Diversity, Equity & Belonging

Diversity, equity, and belonging are fundamental to the University’s values and mission to support all community members.

The College of Medicine shares these values and mission with a commitment to foster a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment for our students, faculty and staff. Decades of research show how important it is to have diversity in both biomedical research and medical education. Without DEB we cannot adequately learn and care for our patients and advance scientific discoveries
