Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity Statement
Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University understands the importance of diversity, inclusion, and equity as an integral component of the educational excellence for which it is renowned. Its campus-wide efforts are underscored within the Cummings School Strategic Vision 2030 Strategic Plan with its focus on prioritizing people.
We value the many experiences and perspectives each individual member brings to our community and welcome diverse ideas and experiences. By promoting a culture that attracts, recognizes and values people as our greatest resource, Cummings school students, faculty and staff, departments, and organizations work together to create an optimal graduate and professional student experience that is respectful of diversity, inclusion, and equity practices.
International Pronouns Day
Acknowledgement of correct pronoun use is an important way to demonstrate respect for one another by identifying and referring to someone according to their wishes. Adopting a consistent use of pronouns and neopronouns shows acceptance and respect for all.
