A Focus on Supporting, Promoting and Growing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion 

We are committed to promoting inclusion, diversity, and cultural sensitivity within our program and our community. We have five sub-committees created to support this important work within our department and in the many communities we serve. 

In tandem with the university's commitment to employee wellness, our wellness committee focuses on maintaining a positive workplace that strengthens personal well-being through education and initiatives that support healthy lifestyle choices.
