Commitment to Diversity

The Jacobs School embraces diversity. Diversity means inclusion of individuals belonging to underrepresented races, ethnicities, genders, religions, socioeconomic statuses, gender and sexual minorities (GSM), as well as individuals with disabilities, those who have served in the military, and those with life experiences, employment and other talents and attributes that can bring added educational value to the scholarly and learning environment. The Jacobs School also uses the term “under-represented in medicine” and endorses the AAMC recommendation that medical schools shift from a national perspective to a regional or local perspective to define under-representation.
