Mission & Vision
Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Justice
The Northwestern Graduate Program in Genetic Counseling is committed to increasing diversity of our students to help address the underrepresentation of marginalized individuals in the field of genetics and genetic counseling. Diversity can be reflected in areas such as: socioeconomic status, race or ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, nationality or place of origin, disability, neurodiversity, and unique work or life experience.
