Office for Inclusion and Culture Development
Diversity and Inclusion at URMC - URMC cultivates a diverse and inclusive environment that guides and transforms our approaches to healthcare, education, research and community partnerships.
Diversity of all kinds - talent, experience, gender, religion, abilities, race, ethnicity, culture, socio-economic background - is required to achieve excellence in any organization. Medical schools and academic medical centers are no exception. The Office for Inclusion and Culture Development provides the University of Rochester Medical Center community with a centralized office to access diversity resources, recruitment resources, and educational programs. We work closely with the medical center's senior leadership and the University's Vice Provost for Faculty Development and Diversity to facilitate diversity efforts across the medical center and the medical school educational continuum.
I welcome your comments, questions and suggestions and look forward to meeting you at future events.
