Diversity Resources

University of Pittsburgh students' commitment to an atmosphere of mutual respect and civility, self-restraint, concern for others, and academic integrity are the foundation of their pledge to the Pitt Promise: A Commitment to Civility.

Diversity embodies acceptance and respect for dimensions of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs, and political perspectives.

Diversity thrives best when these differences are visible and prospering in a safe, positive, and nurturing environment – advancing from tolerating differences to embracing the richness that diversity achieves. It is the fundamental core for holistic health care and serves as a catalyst for mobilizing an effective health professions work force.
