Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging

Diversity Statement

The Jefferson Center for Interprofessional Education (JCIPE) acknowledges systemic discrimination and the barriers that it creates for healthcare, education, and effective team functioning. As such, we are implementing ongoing evaluations of ourselves and programs relative to diversity, equity, and inclusion. JCIPE believes that this is an ongoing effort, and that we can continuously grow and do better. It is our intent that students, staff, and faculty from all diverse backgrounds, disciplines, and perspectives feel valued, included, and respected. We believe the diversity that students, staff, and faculty bring is a resource, strength, and benefit. We learn to be better healthcare practitioners and educators when we respect and celebrate diversity in all its forms.

We partner with you to reimagine and build more open, respectful, and inclusive practice and training spaces. We strive to celebrate and amplify diverse voices, including, but not limited to, people of diverse age, disability, culture, ethnicity, gender identity, race, religion, sexuality, socioeconomic status, and profession. With you, we create opportunities for shared discussion and development around dismantling systemic discrimination together as an ongoing process.
