The Power of Diversity

“Diversity best positions us to be the most effective teachers, learners, and caregivers. While most of us believe that diversity is important, we are also hesitant about specific initiatives, programs, and services that promote the inclusion and retention of underrepresented students and employees. It is imperative that we use resources across the college to obtain these outcomes. To be our best, cultural consciousness has to be infused into our medical school curriculum, research and teaching innovations, and practice.”
