Message from the Assistant Dean for Diversity & Inclusion

Tandoh

At the UVM College of Medicine we believe that diversity and inclusion are two fundamental drivers of institutional excellence that lead to innovation and the ability solve complex problems.

We actively seek diversity and inclusion within our academic community as well as those we serve through our missions of advancing healthcare worldwide, educating the next generation of culturally competent physicians, and engaging with the communities we serve.

The Office of Diversity & Inclusion works collaboratively with departments within the College of Medicine, with our clinical partners, as well as across the greater University of Vermont community. Our work is guided by a comprehensive strategic plan for diversity and outreach that supports our mission and the recruitment and retention of faculty, staff and students who contribute to our commitment to diversity and excellence. We strive to be a useful and valued resource for our internal and external community members.

From public health projects that serve local communities, to scholarship and outreach programs that reach students from diverse areas, the College deploys its resources to support a diverse community of students, faculty and staff. Our community and our graduates reflect our commitment to diversity and inclusion. - Margaret Tandoh, M.D., Assistant Dean for Diversity & Inclusion, Assistant Professor of Surgery
