General Information
Roseman University of Health Sciences has posted various literature advocating diversity, equity, and inclusion. Its Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Council is tasked with carrying out five objectives, including more diversity in its faculty and student body, more advocacy for diversity through programs, and more “equity” in the workplace. Its new “Genesis” program focuses on developing physicians dedicated to DEI and cultural awareness. Oversight of these programs and initiatives is provided by its new senior executive dean for diversity, equity, and inclusion. There is no evidence Roseman requires critical race theory-related training for its students or faculty.
