DIVERSITY AT RVU

Diversity is one of RVU’s Core Values and students continually strive to become more socially conscious physicians in a world made up of diverse populations.

“In today’s society—which is more divided than ever before—it is crucial to…showcase our diversity. When we understand each other’s differences and perspectives, we can move towards tolerance and inclusion.” Gurpreet Kaur, OMS III

The Days of Diversity (DOD) Committee is comprised of students from the DO, MSBS, and PA programs. Advised by the Director of Student Life, these students learn how to develop and deliver programming that will empower, inspire, and equip the student body to practice as socially conscious health care providers. Student leaders that are part of the DOD committee are called Days of Diversity Ambassadors and encourage their peers to attend DOD events throughout the year.
