Diversity and Inclusion Office annual report

At UMass Chan Medical School, we know that diversity, equity and inclusion are central to achieving our mission. Our charge is to create a community of health care providers, researchers and educators dedicated to advancing knowledge, health and wellness in the service of the community, the nation and the world. This requires bringing together and supporting the work of exceptional students, faculty and staff from all backgrounds and all lived experiences. We recognize that talent is not bound by race, ethnicity, class, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, age or disability status. We also know that the advancement of knowledge benefits from the full participation of people with a wide range of perspectives, experiences and ideas. Our goal is to recognize, understand and fight against barriers—prejudice, bias and systemic barriers—that stand in the way of creating a truly diverse, equitable and inclusive UMass Chan Medical School.

In response to this charge, the Diversity and Inclusion Office (DIO) has implemented a number of initiatives and actively engaged efforts to make UMass Chan the diverse, equitable and inclusive environment it strives to be.

We are pleased to present our 2022-2023 annual report for the Diversity and Inclusion Office.
