The School of Medicine’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion works with the medical school leadership to foster and influence an inclusive climate in which all constituents across the School of Medicine experience a genuine sense of belonging, engagement and achievement. In 2015 the ODI launched the School's Inclusion Council, which is made of faculty, staff, and trainees from all Departments within the School of Medicine.
The Inclusion Council has three goals:
- Help prioritize School of Medicine diversity and inclusion goals and strategies;
- Serve as an advisory “think tank” for the Office of Diversity & Inclusion;
- Act as a liaison for department/institute/center’s goals, strategies, questions and concerns.
