Our Initiatives: Advancing Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Our work includes developing innovative programs and projects that support our students, faculty, and staff, as well as engaging with the communities we serve.

Events & Celebrationsgates

Our office is proud to sponsor a number of events throughout the year. From internationally-known guest lecturers, to community celebrations, these events help generate awareness and education around cultural competency, diversity and health-related social determinants.

Community Outreachgirlsscience

Connection with our community isn't something that happens outside the medical campus - indeed, it is impossible to find a border between the campus and the community. Those connections have translated into programs large and small that link the work of the College to the communities of Vermont and the wider world. Learn more about Community Outreach

Professional Developmentlivelearn

What is cultural competence and why do I need to know? How do I promote inclusion? ODI coordinates workshops and consultation services for the College of Medicine community. In conjunction with our campus partners, we can develop a program to fit the goals, participants, and time frame of departments, offices, and student groups that request training.
