We are committed to:
As defined by ARC-PA diversity is the differences within and between groups of people that contribute to variations in habits, practices, beliefs, and/or values. The inclusion of different people (including but not limited to gender and race/ethnicity, age, physical abilities, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status) in a group or organization is an essential component of the definition. Diversity includes all the ways in which people differ, and it encompasses all the different characteristics that make one individual or group different from the another (Accreditation Standards for Physician Assistant Education. 5th edition. Published November 2019). We strive to promote a culture of diversity.
Ensuring fair opportunities for all students, faculty, and staff, regardless of their background, socioeconomic status, or any other characteristic. We strive to eliminate disparities and create a culture of equitable practice.
Creating a welcoming and inclusive environment where every individual student, faculty, and staff feels valued, respected, and supported. We encourage open communication, collaboration, and the exchange of ideas among individuals from various backgrounds and experiences.
Nurturing a sense of belonging within our community by fostering a culture of empathy, understanding, and support. We aim to create a space where everyone feels empowered to grow personally and professionally.
