Department Diversity Vice Chairs & Champions

As part of our plans to enhance diversity and inclusion within each organizational unit and at every level at YSM, departments have a diversity vice chair or champion. They are instrumental in engaging their departmental colleagues to promote our efforts throughout the school.

Diversity Advisory Council

The Diversity Advisory Council’s (DAC) mission is to collaborate with the Office of Diversity and Inclusion (DEI) to create an equitable and inclusive environment for all through the implementation of the YSM Diversity Strategic Plan.
