Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity & Inclusion

We cultivate diversity and inclusion among students, faculty, staff, and leadership.
Dr. Fritz Francois Chats with Students Outside Tisch Hospital

At NYU School of Medicine and NYU Langone, the fundamental values of diversity and inclusion have been inherent to our mission throughout our history. Here, diversity is not just a matter of statistics. It is a shared commitment to fostering excellence by tapping into the knowledge, skills, and creativity of all students, faculty, house staff, and administrators.

Research has shown that diversity in our academic community and in the physician workforce improves both the educational experience and patient care. By addressing race, ethnicity, culture, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, cognitive diversity, and other diverse qualities and identities in our education and research programs and clinical settings, we aim to cultivate a climate of mutual respect. 

Collaboration with the Office of Diversity Affairs is integral to our ultimate goal, which is to develop transformative healthcare leaders positioned to provide health equity for all.
