Indiana University adamantly believes that the opportunity to live and work in a world that builds upon the contributions of everyone is not just a privilege but a right of life. The Office of the Vice President for Diversity, Equity, and Multicultural Affairs serves as an advocate to replace obstacles with opportunities, so that minority and underrepresented students, faculty, and staff find a sense of belonging at IU.
IU School of Medicine's commitment to diversity includes race, ethnicity, gender and gender identity, religion, socio-economic status, age, geography of origin and residence, sexual orientation, disability, work style and other aspects of human attributes and behaviors. The school offers focused, systematic and sustained programs that are aligned with the three foundational pillars: representational diversity, inclusive working and learning environment, and cultural humility and antiracism.
Aligning with the IU School of Medicine framework for diversity, the Office of Graduate Medical Education seeks to train and support a group of residents and fellows from diverse backgrounds in an inclusive environment that supports innovation, collaboration, and discovery. IU School of Medicine identifies three pillars for diversity that are essential for our effort to continue to build a diverse work force that is devoted to patient care and one another.
