Policy 22: Diversity Policy

The Boonshoft School of Medicine (BSOM) selects individuals for admission, employment or appointment on the basis of individual capability and potential for contribution to our mission. In creating a diverse and inclusive community, we do not discriminate nor permit discrimination on the basis of race, national origin, religion, sex, ancestry, age, disability, veteran status, military status, socio-economic status, gender, or sexual orientation and identification.

Diversity is a core value in pursuit of excellence in education, patient care and research. The demands of changing populations in the U.S. require initiatives to reflect those differences and create a culture that supports our mission. BSOM must recruit, retain, and advance the best faculty and learners to achieve its strategic goals. Our culture must encourage all to reach their full potential.

To meet those objectives we will work toward the following goals:

  1. Publicize the school’s commitment to diversity. 
  2. Offer educational opportunities in diversity education to all groups.
  3. Partner with other units and organizations in the university and community to support a climate of inclusion, respect, and learning. 

The Boonshoft School of Medicine will dedicate time, effort and resources toward building a climate of openness, acceptance, and respect. Further, we will measure and monitor our success toward those goals as we strive to respond to societal, medical, and educational needs.
