Institutional Partners:

The Library Guide, managed by our colleagues in the Lamar Soutter Library, is designed to support the primary goals of the DRIVE Initiative:

  • To promote a representative and bias-free curriculum across our learning environments 
  • To enhance the accuracy, representation, and inclusion of diverse populations in all our educational activities 
  • To make space for critical conversations about diversity in teaching and learning across our community.

The Diversity and Inclusion Office (DIO) is the primary vehicle for guiding the diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts of the academic health sciences center.
