Definition of Diversity at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) College of Pharmacy (COP)
“The College community fosters an inclusive and supportive environment encompassing acceptance and respect of differences among students, staff, faculty, patients and guests. Diversity connotes recognition of the variety of ways of being and thinking. Diversity involves a multifaceted set of institutional practices, which value the understanding that each individual is unique and equal. It recognizes individual, group, and organizational differences and how each contributes to the overall betterment of the community through academic excellence and service to state, nation, and global society. These differences include, but are not limited to race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, disabilities, and beliefs (e.g., health, sociological, religious and socio-cultural barriers). These different groups will be represented in all facets of the College’s education and experiences such as our curricula content, faculty, student, staff and research representations to ensure a College climate that promotes the well-being and success of all."
