Diversity and Inclusion

As a key goal and strategy within the College of Medicine’s Strategic Plan, we aim to foster a diverse, equitable, and inclusive UI COM-munity. We will provide resources for students, trainees, faculty, and staff and support cross-college and interdisciplinary engagement and integration.

UI COM is committed to:

  • Recruit, matriculate, support and graduate a diverse body of students and trainees who embrace UI COM’s vision and values.
  • Develop and implement a diversity, equity and inclusion framework that will coordinate efforts at the individual, unit, department, campus and college level.
  • Enrich faculty/staff diversity through recruiting by growing the diverse candidate pool and improving the conversion rate (i.e., hires) of candidates.
