The Office of Diversity & Inclusion

The School of Medicine Office of Diversity & Inclusion is here to connect you with services and departments throughout the university system and in the community that will assist and support your academic and professional success. We also work to develop a respec​tful, diverse and inclusive environment in the School of Medicine, across the University of Colorado campuses and with the community at large.
We believe diversity enhances the learning environment, strengthens the visibility and ties to nearby communities, and contributes to the community’s overall health through programs and trainings focused on decreasing health disparities and increasing health equity.
