Nurturing a robust culture in health care education
The research is clear: The more diverse our community, the more successful we all are.
The proven impact of diversity and inclusion reaches far beyond social responsibility. It leads to increased organizational competitiveness in talent acquisition and retention, creativity and innovation, flexibility, sustainability and more. This is as true in business as it is in higher education and health care professions, and Eugene Applebaum College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences is committed to recruiting a more diverse student body and faculty and providing an environment in which they can thrive and reach their full potential.
To drive the charge, we have developed a focused Council on Diversity and Inclusion (CoDI) that comprises leaders from across our programs as well as alumni partners experienced in community building initiatives. The group has developed a strategic plan complete with meaningful action steps to bring our goals to measurable fruition.
We are all accountable for this core value of our college – and to conscientiously weave it into the very fabric of our community, our research, and our educational experiences.
We look forward to sharing our success stories with you.
