University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences is committed to the importance of diversity among UAMS leadership, faculty, staff, and learners in order to enhance the education of its learners, reduce racial and ethnic health disparities in the state, and honor the unique contributions provided by a diversity of values, beliefs, and cultures.

UAMS is committed to the principle and practice of nondiscrimination and equal opportunity in all areas of employment and other services that affect employees, students, and the general public. The ability of UAMS to meet its mission will increasingly depend on and be strengthened by incorporating constructive diversity in its faculty, students, and staff. Racism, bigotry, and discrimination subvert the mission of UAMS which is to provide a wholesome environment where comprehensive educational, research, and employment opportunities are offered to employees and students.
