UDPT Diversity

Advancing Inclusive Excellence in Physical Therapy at the University of Delaware

Our Department of Physical Therapy is committed to embracing a diverse and inclusive environment that reflects our collective views, experiences, capabilities, cultures, aspirations, and ultimately our commitment to excellence.

We believe that our Doctor of Physical Therapy Program, our research programs and the greater Physical Therapy profession are enriched by the contributions and full participation of people from different backgrounds.

We are committed to developing a rich, inclusive environment for the training of future Physical Therapists and rehabilitation scientists.

Toward those ends, we seek to:

  • Recruit and retain a racially and culturally diverse body of students, faculty and staff.
  • Create a climate that expects and encourages all members of the University of Delaware Physical Therapy community to respect and appreciate individual and cultural differences.
  • Promote equity for people of different backgrounds throughout all interactions within the University of Delaware Physical Therapy community.
