In November 2013, the School of Dentistry Diversity Committee implemented the First Annual Humanity Day with the purpose of fostering community and embracing diversity within its constituency. The four-hour event included a play that depicted racial relationships, small group discussions, a panel, and a slide show celebrating diversity in the school community. Approximately 780 faculty, students and staff attended and a post-event survey yielded 404 responses that gave overwhelmingly positive feedback. Immediate and long-term action plans will be implemented to carry-out recommendations to further leverage diversity and increase inclusiveness in the school. These plans will require continuing financial support and commitment from all faculty, students and staff.
