Diversity is a critical part of the college’s research, education and clinical care goals. A diverse student body, faculty, staff, and patient population help provide a richer education for all graduate students and a more well-rounded research enterprise.
The College defines diversity in the broadest sense to mean inclusion of all persons, regardless of ethnic and racial background*, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, age, and other attributes+, who contribute to a welcoming, inclusive culture across the enterprise.
Our recruitment initiatives include traveling to different campuses to present workshops and seminars to students and faculty about graduate training opportunities at the University of Iowa.
*Ethnic and racial diversity includes, but is not limited to, heritage that is African American, Alaska Native, Hawaiian Native, Hispanic American, Native American, and Native of the U.S. Pacific Islands.
+Other attributes include, but are not limited to, disabilities, veteran status and socio-economic status.
