About Inclusive Excellence


The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusive Excellence is committed to promoting a community where everyone can reach their full potential at the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. We provide resources that promote equitable treatment and opportunities for all people to achieve a prosperous society, as we advocate for policies that promote diversity and inclusion in the School of Medicine workforce. Our goal is to empower all members of our community to remove barriers throughout our campus caused by social injustice, inequality, and racial trauma. We are committed to engaging the voices of our community to promote equality and compassion for all. 


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. 

We celebrate the multiple dimensions of diversity that each member of our community offers, including, but not limited to, race, ethnicity, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic circumstance, national origin, geographic background, immigration status, ability and disability, physical characteristics, veteran status, political ideology, religious belief, and age.
