Institutional Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Statement

At NYU Langone Health, NYU Grossman School of Medicine, and NYU Grossman Long Island School of Medicine (collectively referred to as “NYU Langone”), the core value of diversity is fundamental to our mission to serve, to teach, and to discover. We celebrate the inclusive excellence that is found in the contribution of diverse identities, interlinked identities (intersectionality), communities, and roles that make us a world-class institution in our tripartite mission of patient care, education, and research. We strive to be a place where our exceptionally talented faculty, staff, and students of all identities can thrive.

We believe that a multifaceted community of people working together in a coordinated way, across our tripartite mission, is key to addressing healthcare and health inequities in the communities that we serve.

Together, we will use our diverse backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives to excel in innovation and problem solving as we seek to achieve and even redefine excellence. We intentionally foster a learning and work environment of inclusivity, belonging, and respect for all by relying on our pillars:

  • optimizing organizational culture
  • promoting inclusive community
  • increasing diversity, equity, and inclusion capacity
  • developing and implementing equity-related knowledge
