The Department of Psychiatry with over 1500 faculty and staff members, is committed to improving the well-being of the diverse communities we serve, including patients, their families, our workforce, and the surrounding community.
This commitment guides the implementation of our four mission areas of Education, Clinical Care, Research and Community Engagement.
Cultural humility guides our efforts in responding to the needs of patients, staff, faculty, and trainees from racially, ethnically, linguistically, and culturally diverse groups.
Cultural humility is a lifelong commitment to self-evaluation and self-critique, which includes an acknowledgment and openness to learning from others and a desire to fix power imbalances where none ought to exist.
Through the Department’s Office of Diversity, Inclusion Culture, & Equity (DICE) we communicate and disseminate educational activities and training that contribute to culturally sensitive care and support a respectful, diverse, and inclusive department environment. We facilitate and help ensure that institutional initiatives related to diversity, inclusion, and equity are communicated and adhered to.
