The Department of Health Professions strives to be agents of cultural humility. We aspire to uphold an environment and culture that respects and values individual differences (e.g., race, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation and identity, socioeconomic status, age, abilities, etc.) and stand against racism, discrimination, and bias in all forms. We pledge to a growth mindset, to better address systemic issues, and to have historical awareness in developing a diverse and inclusive community that supports faculty, staff, and students in learning and growing.
