Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Student Groups

The Diversity and Inclusion Committee ensures that our student body feels empowered, valued, respected, supported, and safe. Their goal is to advocate for all students, assist in the recruitment and retention of a diverse student body, and promote diversity through educational programs. Such programs include the annual Diversity Night, in which we explore cultures and customs through cuisine, the performing arts, and discussions.

The Latino Medical Student Association (LMSA) unites and empowers medical students through service, mentorship and education to advocate for the health of the Latino community. Our objectives serve to unify all Latino medical students into one organization, to provide a voice for underrepresented medical students, to actively promote recruitment and retention of Latino students at all levels, and to educate medical students on Latino health issues. We also strive as an organization to advocate for the rights of Latinos in health care, to provide leadership opportunities for Latinos, and to promote volunteerism in the Latino community.
