Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility

Diversity starts by being inclusive and always having an open mind. As a part of the team everyone should have a deep belief in the mission of their institution and feel like a valued member of the organization. Working proactively to address issues and concerns (that anyone faces) as opposed to trying to react to the issues that may come up. This approach must have no barriers and transcend any offices, departments, or roles across the broad spectrum of students, residents, staff, faculty, and administration in higher education. We must work together to create and foster a positive, open, and supportive environment with the goal of having all members of our school community feel safe and comfortable regardless of their racial, cultural, or socio-economic backgrounds.
