About Us

Here at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, 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 in accordance with the mission of the medical school. 

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion is committed to connecting faculty, staff, students, residents and the community-at-large with services and departments throughout the university system that will assist and support your academic and professional success. We also work to develop a respectful, diverse and inclusive environment in the School of Medicine and across the Anschutz Medical Campus where all members of the community feel supported to be successful in achieving the mission of health through our educational programs, patient care and research. 

We invite you to explore our website and programs. Please contact us for information about our initiatives.
