Department of PM&R Statement of Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
The Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation is dedicated to creating and maintaining a culture that celebrates all individuals. The Department respects and uplifts others regardless of: age, citizenship, culture, disability, ethnicity, gender expression, gender identity, marital status, national origin, parental status, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, socioeconomic background, veteran status, or other factors. We take actions toward promoting inclusion, equity, and mutual respect, and we make efforts toward eliminating marginalization, discrimination, and disparities in all that we do. The Department of PM&R and our faculty are committed to creating a supportive environment for all.

The DEI Committee’s purpose is to identify opportunities for DEI enrichment and to implement solutions that align the Department to its continued commitment to anti-marginalization, anti-discrimination, and anti-racism, thereby creating a supportive and equitable environment for all. This committee is dedicated to making diversity and inclusion integral to the structure, policies, objectives, and operations of the Department, its faculty, and its affiliates.
