Diversity and Inclusion Committee

Mission Statement: Through advocacy, education and outreach, we foster a community in which all graduate students at the School of Medicine can pursue academic and professional excellence.

Vision Statement: As a leading advocate for inclusive excellence at the School of Medicine, we will advocate on behalf of all graduate students to ensure a diverse and equitable institution.

Areas of concern:

  • Ensuring diversity in admissions and recruitment
  • Promoting financial aid & funding policies that help offset socioeconomics status
  • Disseminating resources to create culturally competent mentorship
  • Recognizing the contributions of underrepresented minorities at SOM
  • Rallying diverse student group leaders to co-host events
  • Partnering with SOM Diversity Council to conduct town halls and awareness raising events to promote diversity and inclusion
