“It’s not enough to say we have a diverse population according to our demographics. It’s about listening to each other and celebrating everything that person or culture has to offer.”

“It’s encouraging to see diversity at every level within the institution; it demonstrates inclusion and exemplifies that opinions and contributions by underrepresented people are valued and respected. My voice matters.”

Chris McNeal, staff member at TUSM.

“Our differences are not meant to keep people from working together, studying together, collaborating together. We may all have different backgrounds, but that is important, because we all have something to contribute.”

Student Brent Mullen of TUSDM.

“It is important to take the opportunity to be part of the solution. There must be pioneers. I found Friedman to be a place where both students and faculty were willing to engage in dialogue around food, race, equity, and social justice.”
