Diversity + Inclusion
Diversity and Inclusion Statement
Inspired out of Christian tradition, Queen's University College of Medicine treasures the innate dignity of each member of our community and upholds the sanctity of each human being as a profound gift from God. We seek, acknowledge, and celebrate diversity at the University because our faith inspires and compels us to do so. Queen's University College of Medicine encourages diversity by hiring a varied faculty to nurture students and promote a positive atmosphere of interaction between faculty and students from different backgrounds regardless of ethnicity, culture, race, religion, or wealth.
Queen's University College of Medicine stands in solidarity with the religious and International community against racism and hate in all forms. We recognize that systemic racism manifests not only in the physical violence we see in the media, but the ongoing violence of denying marginalized and oppressed communities’ equity in health care, housing, employment, education, environmental quality, and other resources needed to live full and healthy lives. Systemic racism drives racial inequities that impact every aspect of health, be it the acute catastrophe of COVID-19, violence, or deaths from all the common chronic diseases. We demonstrate our commitments to anti-racism in our work as educators of medicine. We teach, speak, and act in the service of expanding equity, access, and cooperation. It is our mission to teach by example to all our students on being compassionate, fair, and understanding to all people no matter nationality, race, culture, religion, sexual orientation, or social status.
