The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusive Excellence promotes a community where everyone can reach their full potential in the Case Western Reserve University School Of Medicine.

We recognize the present social injustices and racism that still exist within our nation and embrace the rich perspectives and experiences that arise from racial, ethnic, socio-economic, sexual, gender and religious diversity within our community.
