Building a supportive and inclusive environment for all
The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (ODEI) is committed to increasing the number of qualified underrepresented minority medical students, residents, and faculty at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine.
ODEI is under the leadership of Steven Kniffley Jr., PsyD, senior associate dean for diversity, equity and inclusion.
The College of Medicine provides a supportive and inclusive environment for all and welcomes diversity in every aspect of our daily operations.
The office interfaces with various departments of the college, the Greater Cincinnati community, and national offices committed to diversity in medical education. The leadership team also works closely with medical students to ensure that each reaches
his or her greatest potential.
In addition, the office works closely with the Office of Student Affairs to educate the entire student body regarding diversity issues and advising several student groups, including the Student National Medical Association (SNMA), the Multicultural Association
of PreMed Students (MAPS), the Latino Medical Student Association (LMSA), the Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association (APAMSA) and the Minority Housestaff Association (MHA).
