An Inclusive Education for a More Diverse World
Creighton University has provided exceptional educational opportunities to students from all over the world since 1878. With every new generation of School of Medicine student leaders comes a unique opportunity to grow and adapt.
This is why we have established the School of Medicine Office of Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging – so that no student, faculty, or community lack representation, or has their voice go unheard.
The Four Rs of Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging
Four pillars are used at Creighton University School of Medicine to facilitate this process. The Four Pillars are:
What is the Office of Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging?
The Office is committed to a policy of non-discrimination at all levels and in the provision of all services.
The Office of Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging is committed to creating a safe and inclusive academic environment that reinforces Jesuit values of people from diverse backgrounds and life experiences.
We promote diversity within the School of Medicine through our various initiatives
The Office of Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging actively pursues efforts to promote diversity within the School of Medicine through various pathway programs and featured efforts.
The program invites 4th-12th grade first-generation, rural, Native American, socioeconomically disadvantaged, and underrepresented students, to learn about careers in the health field and the process of applying to medical school.
We intentionally focus on attracting applicants to the Medical Education Program whose parents have not completed a 4-year degree (bachelor’s degree) at an institution within the United States or Canada.
What makes us so unique?
Creighton University attracts and supports a diverse group of talented people with the vision as you.
- More than 30 different nationalities and ethnicities enrolled
