ASHS will create and support a campus community that educates healthcare professionals who value and appreciate the importance of and have a unique perspective and outlook on diversity. We will seek to improve the quality of life of our faculty, staff, and students by developing and implementing policies and programs that support the ASHS philosophy on diversity. We hope to help our students learn about the different cultures in society, understand that diversity, and actively seek to work with clients from varied cultures and backgrounds. We believe that this diversity-rich experience at ASHS will add value to our campus community.
