The ACHE embraces a commitment to create and sustain an environment that values a variety of perspectives and experiences. The ACHE actively promotes an inclusive environment in which all students, faculty, and staff can work, learn, teach, research, and serve. Diversity is essential to fulfilling our mission of improving the health of the population of Arkansas and others whom we serve and in achieving our vision.

ACHE diversity encompasses the dimensions of sex, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, gender, religion, creed, national origin, military status, and geographic origin. ACHE has a particular focus on enhancing the participation of individuals who are committed to serving underserved populations and geographic locations in and around Arkansas through education, research, service, and clinical practice. The local and regional communities are important partners with ACHE and all of its divisions and are critical to the success of the school’s diversity.

ACHE selects and seeks to recruit and retain individuals for admission, employment, or appointment on the basis of individual capability and potential for contribution to our mission of teaching, healing, and discovery. In creating a diverse and inclusive community we recognize the importance of age, creed, physical ability, gender identity, gender expression, sex, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, language, culture, socio-economic status, spiritual practice, political ideology, national origin, and military and veteran status but these criteria are not used in distinguishing among applicants, students, residents, staff, or faculty.
