Diversity Committee

The College of Medicine Diversity Committee was initially formed in the Spring of 2001 and was charged with discussing and updating the college’s statement on faculty and student diversity, establishing new goals for diversity within the College of Medicine, and assessing recruitment and retention of residents, post-docs and faculty.  The immediate goal of the committee was to develop a 5-year diversity plan for the College of Medicine.  The committee also developed a diversity assessment that served as a method for creating a standardized database for assessing progress in the area of diversity.  The unwavering dedication and hard work of the Diversity Committee have led to great strides in diversity.  Currently, all departments within the College of Medicine have established 5-year diversity plans that are in line with the College of Medicine’s diversity plan.  Diversity committee members serve as liaisons to each department, assisting with departmental plans, and providing diversity related resources.  These efforts have positioned us to strengthen the achievement of our mission and to enhance diversity in the College of Medicine.
