The University asserts its belief that diversity allows students to encounter perspectives other than their own, which results in more vigorous and imaginative student reflections. Diversity aids students in learning how to relate better to persons of different backgrounds, which, subsequently, helps students to become better citizens and better healthcare providers.

We, therefore, ensure that our initiatives enhance the medical center's reputation in the community and region. Our mission is to promote diversity, with a strong emphasis on inclusion. It is also to promote leadership, guidance, and support to all constituencies of the University, including efforts to attract and retain a diverse mix of talented students, faculty, and staff. Moreover, the School of Health Related Professions is dedicated to working collaboratively with our dean, faculty, staff, students, and other senior administrative leaders across campus to uphold this aim.
