At Indiana University School of Medicine, the 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 competence.
Committed to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Justice
IU School of Medicine hosts a variety of unique events year-round to engage faculty, staff and learners in conversations around diversity, equity and inclusion.
Schoolwide Advocacy and Support
Advancing culturally competent education, clinical care and research is a priority. Developing a culture in which all individuals within the medical school community at all nine campuses feel included, valued and respected is crucial. IU School of Medicine is committed to establishing an organizational culture in which differences—including race, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation and other physical abilities and qualities—are present and highly valued. That is a culture in which all people are inspired to fully participate.
