At Upstate Medical University, one of our core values is that "We Respect People." This means that we treat everyone with grace and dignity and that we have a sincere commitment to diversity. A diverse faculty, staff and student body are essential for us to fulfill our missions, for ourselves and for our community.

This commitment to diversity is reflected in our efforts to recruit colleagues to our faculty who are able to bring unique perspectives to their research, clinical work and the education of our learners, and who are sensitive to the needs of others. We strive to create a community in which persons of various races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, socio-economic status, ages, abilities and beliefs feel valued, safe and supported. By embracing diversity we engage excellence.
