Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Touro University Nevada is committed to promoting and protecting diversity, equity, and inclusion for our entire community. We are committed to promoting an equitable and inclusive climate that validates social identities, including but not limited to the following, as well as intersections thereof: age, disability, gender, gender expression, gender identity, geographic location, immigration status, Indigeneity, language, nationality, political affiliation, race/ethnicity, religion/spirituality, sexual orientation/identity, and socioeconomic status/social class.

The committee includes faculty from each College, employees from various administrative offices, representatives from the constituency groups including Faculty Senate, MLPG, and Staff Council, and students from CHHS and COM.
