Our Mission

Established in 2019, the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Council is an action-oriented group composed of a diverse representation of six faculty members and two staff members from the department of behavioral science. The DEI Council will provide leadership, accountability, and recommendations to create a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment within the department. The DEI Council’s mission is grounded in broad principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion as they relate to academic medicine, and more specifically behavioral science.
