Diversity Is In The University’s Core DNA
This has been a time of reflection for many of us. Recent events, including the tragic deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, have prompted important, enriching discussions internally and on a wider scale surrounding discrimination and racial inequality. We are all considering measures that we can take as people and as a society to address longstanding legacies of discrimination and make the world a better place for all, especially in black and other minority communities.
SGU is a global community of all races, colors, creeds, religions, and nationalities, and this diversity is at the very foundation of our and our students’ success. Our students and graduates are taking these values with them to serve the health and welfare of our community members in need.
We are proud of our heritage as a strong champion for the non-traditional medical school student, and have team members around the world continuing to work to enhance the student experience in this regard.
As Chancellor Modica stated in his commencement address, diversity is in the University’s “core DNA,” and we continue that legacy by embracing individuals whose cultural backgrounds strengthen not only our school, but also the communities they serve around the world.
