Diversity and Multicultural Affairs
Creating opportunities through diversity
Challenging students to examine cultural biases and stereotypes in their educational journey
DMU is committed to providing an inclusive environment in which every student and employee can thrive on academic, professional and personal levels. Against the backdrop of rapid diversificiation in the world around us, DMU is committed to effectively preparing culturally sensitive health care professionals.
Cultural competency & humility: Your resources for learning
DMU has established a number of programs to create and promote diversity and inclusion on campus, including the Diversity Health Series, Safe Zone programming, a student advisory committee and many others. We also offer the Health P.A.S.S. program for undergrads who are interested in pursuing medicine and health sciences in graduate school.
The Glanton Scholarship Fund: Diversity in health care
The Glanton Fund was created to support minority students entering health care and prepare them for success in an increasingly diverse society. It has grown into one of DMU’s most supported initiatives.
“DMU has not only provided me with a well-rounded education, but it has also given me confidence to be an amazing provider. Although the programs are very rigorous, my class became my second family and we all pushed each other to reach our greatest potential.”
Cara Cohn, P.A. student
