Office for Women and Diverse Faculty

The VP&S Office for Women and Diverse Faculty was formed at the recommendation of the 2019 Report and Recommendations from the Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons Dean’s Advisory Committees for Women Faculty and CUIMC Faculty Diversity, and Inclusion. The work of this office is to provide targeted outreach and resources to faculty including peer mentorship groups, career guidance, and coaching for women and diverse faculty across various career paths. Additionally, the office works to engage the larger VP&S community to promote a culture of equity and respect.

In partnership with the Morningside campus CUIMC has joined the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine's (NASEM) Action Collaborative on Preventing Sexual Harassment in Higher Education to focus on examining institutional cultures and climates as well as working collaboratively to develop strategies that will  improve organizational climate/culture at CU and CUIMC.

Additional programming offered throughout the year, including mentoring groups and special lectures, can be found here.
