Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
As a community, the University of Rochester is defined by a deep commitment to Meliora – ever better. Embedded in that ideal are the values we share: equity, leadership, integrity, openness, respect, and accountability.
The UR CTSI is committed to fostering, cultivating and preserving a culture of diversity and inclusion. We believe that a diverse research workforce furthers the translational research mission and empowers organizations to ask and answer the broadest, most innovative research questions. We are committed to fostering and supporting a workplace culture inclusive of people regardless of their race, ethnicity, national origin, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, marital status, age, physical abilities, political affiliation, religious beliefs or any other non-merit fact, so that all employees feel included, equal valued and supported.
Your comments and suggestions are welcome and will assist us in continuously improving our diversity initiatives.
