School of Medicine student hopes her pandemic experience benefits future doctors
January 15, 2021
We are an educational institution that values diversity of thought and experience. We are eager to welcome all who wish to join us in this pursuit. We recognize that those students who have persevered despite economic and other challenges have a wealth of transferrable skills that are invaluable to the health care profession.
We believe it is a global imperative to educate future physicians who not only treat the communities they serve, but also reflect them. We are committed to having our future physician workforce overcome the painful history of racism and discrimination in medicine.
To these ends, we aspire to be a teaching and learning community that celebrates diversity, equity and inclusion. We believe that excellence in medical education thrives in a holistic environment of innovative and collaborative thinking. This calling is best achieved together.

In Spring 2021, we introduced the university’s first Equity and Inclusion Report. It tracks a variety of key initiatives that are building a culture of inclusive excellence, reports on the progress we are making, and spotlights the students, faculty and staff who are bringing this important work to life. This report will be updated twice a year.
“We don’t want diversity and inclusion to be ‘add-ons.’ We want to be a university where inclusive excellence is a part of our institutional fabric and a pillar of our existence. We want to create a community where everyone who comes here is part of the Quinnipiac University family and feels that they belong, are valued and are included.”
Below you will find forms, resources and policies that have been established to ensure a safe environment for all members of the Quinnipiac community.
We’re always here to help provide additional information and answer any questions you may have.
