The University of Massachusetts Medical School's (UMMS) mission focuses on achieving national distinction in health sciences education, research and public service. The University believes success in this mission is guided by principles that place the highest priority on respect for the dignity and diversity of the members of the Medical School community. In keeping with this commitment, UMMS has established the Committee on Equal Opportunity and Diversity (CEOD), a standing committee that reports to the Chancellor. The CEOD has nine committees that report through it to make recommendations for a civil, inclusive and just organization. The committees that report through the CEOD and its executive committee are: the Minority Academic Advancement, Civility, International, Disabilities, Mature Workforce, LGBTA, Representation, Student Representation and Professional Women.

The CEOD and its committees serve in an advisory capacity to the Chancellor, as well as to the Diversity and Inclusion Office.  Wherever possible, the Committee on Equal Opportunity and Diversity works in collaboration with its clinical partner, UMass Memorial Health Care.

If you are interested in participating, please contact the CEOD via ceod@umassmed.edu.
