Diversity at Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED)

Diversity is Everyone’s Business

Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED) embraces diversity and its benefits, and values a work and learning environment that is grounded in respect and inclusion of all. Diversity encompasses race, culture, ethnicity, gender, socio-economic status, religion, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, disability, and military/veteran status.

NEOMED views diversity as a commitment to recognizing and appreciating the variety of characteristics that make individuals unique. We strive to create an atmosphere that promotes and celebrates both the uniqueness of individuals and collective achievement. The practice of diversity at NEOMED means continually educating and training members of our University community so that we can effectively serve a multicultural society. Each of us is accountable for our overall success.

President's Statement on Diversity

“Northeast Ohio Medical University appreciates the rich diversity of our country and is dedicated to increasing the diversity of our students, faculty and staff to ensure that our community is inclusive to all. It is more important than ever that we look at the critical role health care providers play and the need to ensure that the health care workforce is representative of the patients that are served. The efforts of our Diversity Council, combined with the outreach efforts of our Education for Service initiative, aid us in focusing on diversity efforts that can make a positive impact in the communities we serve.”
- Jay A. Gershen, D.D.S., Ph.D.
