We are committed to leading transformational education, working toward cultural humility, and taking impactful actions related to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Committee is composed of senior faculty, staff, administration, PRAs and trainees. This group currently include individuals of various race/ethnicities and sexual orientation at all levels who are committed to creating a diverse department and celebrates differences in all forms. All members of the department are welcome to join this group!
The DEI group meets monthly and there are several subcommittees to ensure the group accomplishes the numerous planned goals.
