Department of Neurology - Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

Black history deserves to be studied and celebrated year round. In the month of February, though, we have an extra opportunity to highlight Black history. Looking for ways to celebrate Black History Month? Check out these events from the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History & Culture and the Association for the Study of African American Life & History.

IDEAL's team

The University of Utah Department of Neurology is an equal opportunity program: proudly pluralistic and firmly committed to providing training and employment opportunities to outstanding, qualified individuals with diverse backgrounds and experience. The Department of Neurology recognizes the need for and value of diversity, equity, and inclusion, and therefore strives to maintain a welcoming community that will allow for all faculty, staff, and trainees to realize their full potential. In doing so, we hope to inspire the transformative change that is needed in all levels of academia. To this end, we are developing a strategic plan to guide our resolve.

VISION:

We are committed to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, disability status, and age. We promote racial justice and socially responsible medicine.

GOALS:

  1. To develop an infrastructure to support faculty development, especially within under-represented groups.
  2. To increase equity, diversity, and inclusion in all levels of the department (i.e., faculty, staff, trainees).
  3. To build a program committed to creating a diverse and inclusive biomedical workforce within the department’s research, work, training, and patient-care environments.
