School of Medicine Inclusion Council

Established in November 2020, the School of Medicine Inclusion Council is a pivotal leadership forum that brings together representatives from across our school’s community to create and sustain a structure for school-level dialogue on issues related to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI). The council serves as a sounding board for School of Medicine community members and brings actionable ideas and initiatives to leadership for implementation.
