For some of you, this title may be a surprise, and for others it is not. For the latter group, it is likely that you have experienced in your own life, the occasion when collective wisdom has produced the best decision. This is not a consideration for “group think” as a path to decision making, but rather a process that provides the opportunity for all perspectives to be heard, respected, and incorporated into a final decision or product.

These principles form the foundation for mission of the new Office of Inclusion and Diversity, based at the Perelman School of Medicine.
