Humanism, Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Statement
WesternU students, faculty, staff, and administration are committed to fostering a culture of respect and equity at all levels and for all people.
- We engage in meaningful efforts to enhance our diversity and eliminate barriers to success through thoughtful policies and practices.
- We embrace the varied backgrounds, beliefs, and voices of the people who make up our University for how they enrich our educational, personal, and professional experiences.
- We create an inclusive environment by encouraging healthy discourse and empowering individuals to be their authentic selves.
- We strive to dismantle health disparities and broader systemic injustices that disproportionately affect persons of color and the economically, socially, and physically disadvantaged.
These values go hand in hand with our humanistic tradition and our mission to enhance the quality of life in our communities.“Humanism is about listening. It is about our graduates not just only dealing with the scientific and the medical aliments of the patients care, it is about the human touch that can renew the spirit. As we foster an environment of holistic and humanistic approach to education and professional relationships, the result will be an enhancement of patient care.”
Founding WesternU President, Dr. Philip Pumerantz.
