At the University of Kansas Medical Center, diversity and inclusion are integral values, guiding the way we envision our future. As an academic institution, our ability to understand, embrace and function in a multicultural society is critical to our mission. We define diversity as valuing differences and respecting individuals. We strive to ensure an inclusive and fair work environment for our employees. Our strategic initiatives are underway, as we seek to integrate diversity, cultural competence and professionalism across the KUMC campus.
Faculty and staff members are actively working to recalibrate diversity and inclusion efforts at KUMC. Information related to the Stratetic Plan Workgroup focused on Diversity, Cultural Competence and Professionalism can be found on SharePoint.
