Diversity Policy

Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science

"Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science believes that its education, service, clinical and scholarship missions are enriched by a community of people from diverse backgrounds and cultures.  This includes differences attributable to gender, race, sexual orientation, cultural background and socioeconomic status.  In addition, because of our focus on interprofessional collaboration, we acknowledge that healthcare is a culture in and of itself and within the healthcare culture there exists professional subcultures. We further believe that the educational milieu is enriched by the varied perspectives and experiences that each member brings to the community.  To this end, we will monitor, evaluate, enhance and educate the University community in regard to cultural diversity."
