Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Task Force
The purpose of the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Task Force is to foster community engagement and inclusive environments, recruitment and retention of diverse individuals, and expand education about health equity and diversity.
The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Task Force at University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria acknowledges the existence of social, economic, environmental and structural differences that lead to inequities in our society. Our College is dedicated to the goal of building a diverse and inclusive community of faculty, staff, residents and medical students committed to teaching, learning and working in a multicultural environment. We acknowledge the unique contributions those with varied life experiences and backgrounds have on the advancement of research, teaching and patient care, and will aim to build a community that recruits, embraces, welcomes and supports individuals who identify as underrepresented in medicine.
