The Miller School of Medicine is committed to fostering diversity.
Diversity enriches the medical environment by building mutual respect and teamwork to prepare students, faculty members and staff for citizenship in an increasingly complex society. It strengthens the environment by providing opportunities for communication between people of varied backgrounds, promoting personal growth and a healthier community by encouraging critical thinking and challenging preconceptions. Furthermore, as a diverse community, the school is better prepared to face the challenges of the future, in advancing medical knowledge with research, and in dealing with the clinical needs of our society.
We believe in liberty and justice for all. We stand with our black students, faculty, staff, and every ally of the black community against systemic racism, racial injustice, senseless violence, and oppression.
