Our Commitment to Health for All

We are determined to research, challenge, and eradicate health disparities in care delivery, outcomes, and employment. We’re working to proactively and creatively develop institutional actions, policies, and funding mechanisms that extend support for University of Utah’s values-driven mission. We’re excited about working with the community to deliver care that leads to equal outcomes to people of all backgrounds.

Culture, Belonging, & Connection

We believe society thrives when we empower people from all backgrounds to succeed and live their healthiest lives. That begins by incorporating more connection and belonging in our workplaces. We're building pathways for all people to establish careers with us, investing in our community to create jobs and help rebuild economies, and listening to colleagues and patients to learn from their experiences moving forward. We’re committed to being the advocates and partners in the change we all want to see in the world.
