Students and Faculty at a recent lab dedication.

Last fall, more than 400 UNR Med faculty, community faculty, staff, residents and students participated in a school-wide effort to gather input on the effectiveness of the School of Medicine’s diversity and inclusion efforts. Recruiting more diverse faculty and students was noted as an area for improvement, with an emphasis on Hispanic, African American, rural and low-income/first generation groups. To learn more about how we’re advancing a culture of diversity and inclusion – and how you can become involved – please visit the Council on Diversity Initiatives webpage.
