Working Together to Advance A Culture of Inclusion

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) promotes an inclusive environment that actively values diversity among students, faculty, staff and the broader community. This is accomplished by working to establish a comprehensive and systemic set of actions which infuse diversity and inclusion into the core aspects of the UTMB Health mission. The Diversity Council represents the cornerstone of the diversity and inclusion process. The council is a chartered committee who will lead and support programs and practices which reinforce the nine goals outlined in the diversity and inclusion strategic plan.
