Office of Diversity Affairs and Inclusion
The College community fosters and inclusive and supportive environment encompassing acceptance and respect of differences among students, staff, faculty and guests. Diversity connotes recognition of the variety of ways of being and thinking. Diversity involves a multifaceted set of institutional practices, which value the understanding that each individual is unique and equal. It recognizes individual, group, and organizational differences and how each contributes to the overall betterment of the community through academic excellence and service to state, nation, and global society. These differences include, but are not limited to race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, disabilities, and beliefs (biological, sociological and religious). These different groups will be represented in all facets of the College's education and experiences such as our curricula content, faculty, student, staff and research representations to ensure a College climate that promotes the well-being and success of all.
"One of our core values is a commitment to diversity, and it is one of the things that distinguishes and differentiates us from other colleges of pharmacy. To that end, and under Dr. Awe's capable leadership, we decided to formalize this commitment in a number of ways including the creation of an Associate Dean for Diversity and now the Office of Diversity Affairs. This office will be crucial to our efforts as we move forward with our strategic vision."
