Staff Diversity and Inclusion

Staff Diversity and Inclusion supports the University’s commitment to maintaining a workforce that welcomes and reflects the diversity of our society.

Diversity creates opportunities for people to engage, understand, and respect others whose perspectives, values, beliefs, traditions, and worldviews have been shaped by experiences and backgrounds.

The Staff Diversity and Inclusion strategy includes recruitment activities, retention, and training and development programs that foster inclusion and community engagement. Recruitment activities focus on the goal of creating a more diverse professional workforce as well as developing future health care practitioners and leaders.

Mission

    • Develop and implement organization-wide staff diversity and inclusion strategies and initiatives that support workplace best practices to recruit, develop and retain diverse talent.
    • Develop strategies and support training related to equal opportunity laws, policies, prevention of sexual harassment, and discrimination.
    • Develop and collaborate on strategies that address areas of underutilization, adverse impact and affected class requirements set by the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFFCP) rules and regulations.
    • Additional diversity-relating programming takes place throughout the year, as schools and offices University-wide host programs for faculty, students, and staff. Visit the calendar for a list of upcoming events.
