At the University of Michigan, our dedication to academic excellence for the public good is inseparable from our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. It is central to our mission as an educational institution to ensure that each member of our community has full opportunity to thrive in our environment, for we believe that diversity is key to individual flourishing, educational excellence and the advancement of knowledge.
Diversity is a key component of excellence, especially for solving the complex biomedical challenges that our field of computational medicine and bioinformatics faces. Furthermore, we believe all people regardless of background, race, religion, sexual/gender orientation, age or disability deserve an equitable opportunity to pursue the education and career of their choice and to have a safe space in which to pursue it. To increase our diversity, we aim to create a more inclusive environment with support for equitable education, and to recruit a diverse faculty and student body.
