School of Medicine - Office for Diversity and Inclusion

Visit Department Website

The Office for Diversity and Inclusion believes that to pursue excellence in medicine fully, we must create a diverse and inclusive place for our team members and our students.

To foster that environment, our office—led by Dr. Mona Fouad—works in concert with the School of Medicine Dean, Dr. Selwyn Vickers, the Office for Diversity and Multicultural Affairs, and the individual departments within the School of Medicine.

ODI oversees events from AMWA, faculty associations, and more.
