Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Vision Statement:

The UTMB Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences is committed to UTMB’s core values and stands in solidarity with the mission of advancing the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion. We believe in demonstrating compassion, acting with integrity, showing respect to all, embracing diversity, and promoting lifelong learning. It is essential that we promote and engage in open communication on these important issues with all of our constituencies – students, faculty, staff, and the community – and discuss how to think nationally but implement action locally. We support and encourage ideas, suggestions, and comments regarding issues of injustice and how we can correct them with the goal of serving as a model institution for others.
