DIVERSITY & INCLUSION

at the UD College of Health Sciences

 

In the College of Health Sciences, we believe that diversity and inclusion are key drivers of academic excellence, impactful research, and proficient practice. We are committed to developing and implementing strategies to recruit and retain highly qualified students, faculty, and staff from diverse backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives, and nurture an inclusive environment with a sense of belonging and engagement. As a leader in health sciences training, it is our mission to train and mentor future clinicians and scientists who understand and appreciate diversity and have the cultural competence to interact effectively in a diversifying nation and world.
