Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Leadership
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Goals, Priorities and Pillars
The following are the center's priorities which fall in line with Baylor College of Medicine's missions:
Research: Designs new programs and funding mechanisms that are inclusive on the frontier of space health research to support diverse researchers and enhance minority representation. Through TRISH, the Center for Space Medicine developed a national diversity-focused research program and is using a three-part strategy to close the diversity gap.
Education: Strives to provide students with the opportunity to learn from a diverse group of faculty and mentors, fostering relationships with experts in the field of space medicine. Students have the opportunity to learn from multiple sources through didactic lectures and are paired with mentors based on each student’s area of study interest.
Community: Seeks, supports, and fosters a community and workplace environment of diverse faculty, staff, and students along with any and all persons interested in the work of the center and/or space medicine.
