Diversity & Inclusion Office


As the Commonwealth’s first and only public academic health science center and the largest non-for-profit health care system in Central Massachusetts, diversity is inherent in our mission and integral to our identity. The multiculturalism of the patients we serve, our diverse faculty, staff and student body, and the diverse communities we are part of, create unique opportunities for leveraging our differences as fundamental to our institution’s excellence.  Our work is a global effort enhanced by the great diversity of the local and regional communities in which we live and serve. 

Our diversity efforts strengthen our capacity for vital advancements, for research discoveries that change the world, and for carrying out our shared mission of educating tomorrow’s physicians, research scientists and nurses and delivering the best possible care to every patient.
