Diversity, Equity & Inclusion are core values at the College of Pharmacy. Together, we continue to build a nurturing, welcoming, and supportive environment where everyone is respected, diversity is celebrated, and individuals are allowed to voice their ideas without judgment.

Our Values

In 2024 The College renewed its values, using a process that included input from students, staff, faculty and administrators. We found that the ideas endorsed by members of the College coalesced around the following:

  • Belonging
  • Integrity
  • Impact
  • Collaboration
  • Excellence

Another value that was strongly voiced by members of COP is diversity. As we did our work, we recognized that diversity needed to be present in each of the ideas, and therefore wove diversity throughout each of our values.
