Office renamed to Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The Carver College of Medicine Office of Cultural Affairs and Diversity Initiatives has renamed to the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

“We continue to value diverse identities and perspectives, and the concepts of equity and inclusion more clearly convey our goal of making sure that everyone at the Carver College of Medicine has what they need to fully participate in our community,” says Denise Martinez, MD, clinical associate dean for diversity, equity, and inclusion.

The name change will more closely align the office with the University of Iowa Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and other universities and colleges nationwide.
