The Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) guides strategies for integrating diversity and promoting excellence into UMMC’s three mission areas – education, research and health care. We foster a climate of inclusion throughout our workforce and student body, where respect for different points of views, backgrounds, and cultures are seen as strengths that enable the entire academic health center to benefit from each individual’s unique talent and perspective. The ODI provides oversight and evaluation of the institutional climate including monitoring adopted metrics in the UMMC Strategic Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan.
Authentic love and care involve cherishing all people from all walks of life.
My passion for diversity cannot be isolated to a singular incident or experience.
Diversity is the one true things that we all have in common.
