JABSOM Institutional Diversity Statement

The John A Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM) embraces diversity and inclusion as part of our shared Hawaiian, Asian and Pacific values.  These shared values are responsive to our unique location in the center of the Pacific.  We uphold that an environment of inclusiveness, equal opportunity and respect for the similarities and differences in our communities advances our mission of education, research and innovation, community service and clinical healing.  JABSOM is committed to preparing a culturally competent health and science workforce that meets the needs of Hawaiʻi.  We strive to reflect the demographics of Hawaiʻi, including representation of Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islands, individuals from rural areas of Hawaiʻi, first generation college students and those from economically, socially, and educationally disadvantaged backgrounds.  JABSOM is cultivating a transformative teaching and learning environment that promotes the recruitment and retention of students, faculty, and staff, who are representative of the diverse population of Hawaiʻi.
