Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

As core values of Washington University School of Medicine, diversity and inclusiveness fuel success in everything we do.

Backed by strong commitments from the School of Medicine dean and school leadership, and priorities and programs coordinated by the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, we are laying the foundation for a stronger, more equitable campus and community where everyone is welcomed, respected and supported.

The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion drives the School of Medicine’s efforts to promote equity for the medical school community. Programs, training curricula, events and initiatives are designed to be transformative — to raise awareness, inspire action, support equitable employment and cultivate a culture of diversity and inclusion.

The Office of Diversity Programs further promotes diversity and cultural awareness among medical students, with support for international students provided by the Office for International Students and Scholars. Beyond these offices, an ever-growing network of groups and organizations support diversity, equity and inclusion efforts.
