Each month, there will be a meaningful, positive word posted around campus, underscoring UMMC’s values. The “Word of the Month” is a visual reminder of the institution’s standards when it comes to the promotion of a respectful and inclusive environment. Words are posted in the elevators and bulletin boards around campus. Managers are encouraged to post the word in their departments or units and to use the word as a “talking point” to stimulate dialogue with employees.
Something set up as an object or end to be attained; a subject under discussion or an action in course of execution

Quotes from UMMC employees:
“From my perspective, purpose embodies the urgency to do something great and without self-absorption. The year 2020 showed us what our collective strength could accomplish. It also awakened us to realities of injustice. Our providers, researchers, staff, and students should be proud of all the good they pour into our communities. Yet, in all things, we must not take for granted our position of building a more equitable world. Our commitment and investments to diversity, equity, inclusion and creating a culture of belonging is something to be proud about. Let us be purposeful."Dr. Juanyce TaylorChief Diversity and Inclusion Officer
