Diversity and Inclusion

The University of Missouri and its School of Medicine share the following definitions of diversity and inclusion. Diversity is reflective of a community of people of differing genders, racial-ethnic backgrounds, languages, religious beliefs, sexual orientations, abilities and disabilities, national and geographical origins, socio-economic class, veterans' status and political views. Inclusion means that diversity should be included as an integral component of every effort to improve education, research and patient care. Inclusion should be reflected in the campus climate, curriculum, intellectual discourse, leadership, scholarly products, and recruitment and retention efforts.

The MU School of Medicine promotes an inclusive academic health care community. A diverse population offers a rich environment that leads to greater knowledge, understanding, acceptance and mutual respect. The school's faculty members embrace MU's commitment to diversity and recognize the special role of the medical school in the development of a physician workforce prepared to serve an increasingly diverse state and national populace. It is both the MU School of Medicine's responsibility and in its institutional self-interest to recruit and retain faculty, staff and students who reflect and understand the larger communities that MU serves. The School of Medicine will, through education and example:

  • Commit to a welcoming, engaged environment for all;
  • Pursue a diverse and qualified community within the School of Medicine;
  • Recognize and reward talent, scholarship, and merit in an environment that derives its strength from varied societal experiences;
  • Value the enrichment that diversity provides to the practice and art of medicine.
