Office of Diversity and Inclusion


The Office of Diversity and Inclusion at LSU Health Sciences Center New Orleans is committed to building and sustaining an academic and professional environment that welcomes diversity among its students, faculty, and staff.

Through intentional, strategic, and coordinated efforts, we encourage all members of our community to embody a commitment to access, equity, inclusion and belonging in their professional practice and campus contexts. In addition to preparing our institutional leaders, faculty, and staff with the principles needed to engage an increasingly diverse demographic, we are actively engaged in ongoing efforts to ensure our students are prepared to work in an increasingly-diverse health context.     




Further, we are committed to:

  • Organizing a campus unit that provides consultative support and facilitates collaboration and strategic partnerships between LSUHSC’s six schools and non-academic units.
  • Fostering a climate that embraces inclusive integrity, inclusive innovation, and inclusive excellence.
  • Creating, refining, and collaborating to ensure equitable access for historically underrepresented populations.
  • Building a community that fosters a culture of inclusive dialogue, critical conversations, and dynamic community spaces.
