The College of Pharmacy Admissions Committee strives to recruit students of diverse cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. A diverse learning environment instills respect, understanding and appreciation for distinct human experiences. Diversity is not limited to racial, ethnic or cultural differences. Instead, the Committee aims to foster cohorts reflective of diverse experiences and backgrounds across race and ethnicity, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, religion, cultural and spiritual beliefs, age, abilities and special needs, education, military experience, national origin, immigration status, language differences, and socio-economic status. In addition, the Admissions Committee has a profound commitment to the recruitment of individuals who self-identify from historically underserved populations.
