The mission of the Diversity Consortium is to further diversity in the School of Medicine by initiating, maintaining, and improving programs, policies, and processes that support a culture of equality, inclusion, and the value of each person. It is advisory to the Diversity and Inclusion Steering Committee.
The Diversity Consortium consists of individuals who represent students, residents, faculty, and staff throughout the Health System. The Senior Associate Dean for Faculty Affairs and Faculty Development, the Senior Associate Dean for Medical Education, the Associate Dean for Diversity, and the University Vice President and Chief Officer for Diversity and Equity serve as voting ex officiomembers. Other members are appointed by the Senior Associate Dean for Faculty Affairs and Faculty Development and the Senior Associate Dean for Medical Education for three-year terms, which may be renewed once. A member who has served two terms may be reappointed after rotating off of the Consortium for a full year. The Consortium meets on the third Tuesday of each month.
The Consortium members are developing operating principles and guidelines to govern how it will conduct business.
