Diversity at MUSC

Student Diversity Mission

The Office of Student Diversity collaborates with the MUSC community to promote an inclusive environment that fosters intellectual excellence and the true integration of a diverse student body into all aspects of academic life.


The mission of the Office of Student Diversity is to promote an inclusive environment for all students regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, nationality, religion, sexual orientation, age ability, or socio-economic status.

The staff is committed to fulfilling its mission:

  • to facilitate the academic success of students as they transition into and through health professions and biomedical sciences programs
  • to augment the unique values and interests of diverse student groups while encouraging community building and collaboration with the entire student body
  • to serve as a catalyst in building and promoting effective relationships with the six colleges; assisting with the on-campus recruitment, retention, and graduation of a more diverse health care workforce
  • to promote diversity education, awareness and community enhancement in collaboration with the Division of Education and Student Services; providing comprehensive programs and services that enhance the quality of every student's life.
