UMMS Diversity Statement

Diversity is inherent in University of Massachusetts Medical School's mission to advance the health and well-being of the people of the Commonwealth and the world.  As a leading academic health sciences center, we are preparing tomorrow's physicians, nurses and scientists to serve and relate to a multicultural society by

  • building an inclusive culture characterized by civility and respect
  • increasing numbers of underrepresented groups in student, faculty and staff positions
  • improving the cultural competence of our workforce through diversity education and programming, and
  • advancing health equity by making a significant impact on reducing disparities through research, service and practice.

Diversity at UMMS is fully embraced and fundamental to its institutional excellence.
