Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Equipping and supporting faculty, staff and students for inclusive excellence at DU

We cultivate a community where similarities and differences are understood, respected and valued. We promote full participation of all community members and support multiple perspectives and diversity of thought. DEI is the framework for the way we engage talent and use resources, including but not limited to physical and fiscal, to conduct business as we equip students, staff and faculty for an inclusive way of being and leading in the world.

DEI Vision

We invite you to join us as we band together across our campuses to ensure all DU community members have equal and fair access to all opportunities and to dismantle discrimination of any kind, including race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic class, national origin, physical ability, age, religious affiliation, or veteran status.

Minding the Gap

Addressing racial disparities in healthcare

When it comes to healthcare, gaps in clinical education contribute to racial disparities in the treatment and outcomes of patients of color.

Join the Davenport University Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Council and College of Health Professions as they host Malone Mukwende, founder of Black and Brown Skin and author of “Mind the Gap” a clinical handbook of signs and symptoms in Black and Brown Skin. Mukwende wrote ‘Mind the Gap” to encourage more inclusive content within medical and clinical studies and to acknowledge that symptoms of sickness and disease vary in their presentation across skin colors.
