Diversity Champions

Designated faculty and staff contribute to the wellbeing of PA students by promoting a safe space for all students. The team is available to listen, provide information, connect students to appropriate resources, and/or confidentially bring concerns to program faculty or leadership. Our faculty have DEI activities related to publications, community involvement, continuing education, admissions, and curricular enhancement.
