Diversity embraces the distinctiveness of each individual and the groups to which each belongs.  It acknowledges and celebrates those human qualities that are different from our own and outside the groups to which we belong, as well as our own.

A diverse environment is one that: welcomes and values all people; is grounded in respect for others; is nurtured by open dialogue between those of differing perspectives; and is motivated by action that is characterized by an openness and willingness to change.

Education in a diverse setting prepares students to become good health care partners in an increasingly complex, pluralistic society.
