The University of Washington School of Pharmacy strives to be a global leader in pharmacy education, research, and service, committed to providing a transformative learning experience in a collaborative and diverse environment focused on improving the health and well-being of the communities we serve. The School recognizes that this leadership position requires responsibility and commitment by faculty, staff and students to core values of diversity, equity and inclusion in every aspect of the School’s operations.
Why are these values important to the School?
- They help foster an engaging and supportive learning, scholarly and work environment
- They may improve our competitive advantage in hiring and admissions by reflecting openness and flexibility in working with others
- They provide us with an opportunity to train students to interface with a variety of populations, to understand unique needs, increase potential for trust and engagement, and promote healthcare equity and reduce healthcare disparities.
- Treating each other with dignity and respect is simply the right thing to do
