The Vice Chancellor’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Cabinet’s commitment toward cultivating diverse, equitable and inclusive environments to learn, work and serve drives our collective responsibility.
This responsibility is activated through the fulfillment of campus-wide strategic initiatives, objectives and annual goals. The Cabinet’s vision spans our three campuses—Kansas City, Salina and Wichita and calls for engagement of the University at all levels, faculty, staff, students, residents and community members. We invite you to join in this essential commitment by engaging in the Cabinet, committees and workgroups.

KU Medical Center defines diversity as a state of being in which the variety of cultures, experiences, expertise and viewpoints are valued and incorporated into the fabric of our community.
Diversity encompasses age, education level, ethnicity and race, gender expression and identity, nationality, national origin, physical and mental ability, political and religious perspectives, sex, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, veteran status and other human differences.
"This is a critically important time for us all to restate our commitment to making KU Medical Center a safe and welcoming place for everyone regardless of race, color, ethnicity, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation or anything else that makes you unique. "- Jerrihlyn L. McGee, DNP, RN, CNE Vice Chancellor for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion & Chief Diversity Officer
