Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center and Penn State College of Medicine are committed to promoting an environment free from bias, inequity, and prejudice. Each individual’s uniqueness is valued and helps create an inclusive, respectful, equitable, and productive environment that capitalizes on the similarities and differences between individuals. We define diversity and inclusion as a culture in which all patients, faculty, house staff, students, caregivers and staff are accepted, respected, and embraced. Our definition of diversity includes, but is not limited to the dimensions of race, gender, religion, nationality, age, disability, veteran status, ethnicity, real or perceived sexual orientation, generational issues, language ability and political beliefs.

Opinions expressed on this blog do not necessarily represent those of the organization. Events included are not necessarily endorsed by the organization.  The Penn State Hershey Office for Diversity staff encourages discussion and sharing of information and thoughts. Because of the potentially sensitive and private nature of comments, we review all submissions to determine if they should be posted publicly or responded to privately.
