The UAMS Department of Biomedical Informatics (DBMI)-Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI) Committee began in the summer of 2022 with a charge from department leadership to bring a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion to all aspects of department life. We are excited to bring DEI best practices to our department work culture, educational offerings, research mission, and beyond.
UAMS DBMI-DEI Committee Vision and Mission Statement
Our vision is to have an organizational environment that embodies a culture of inclusion within the department where all members receive equitable treatment, feel valued, and are supported in the pursuit of excellence in their endeavors, while maintaining respect for work-life balance. Our mission is to support our students, staff, and faculty by identifying and addressing barriers to diversity, equity, and inclusion in education, research, administration, service, and beyond. It is our duty to listen, engage in dialog, advise, build relationships, and foster any needed changes, while modeling inclusive behavior in all circumstances.
