Office of Diversity, Inclusion & Commuinity Engagement Brochure
The University of Oklahoma College of Medicine is opening new frontiers in education, research and patient care. Our mission is leading healthcare in education, research and patient care. Our goals are uncompromising quality, exceptional service, innovative education, advancing knowledge and institutional strength.
As part of the ongoing efforts regarding diversity and inclusion within the College of Medicine, the Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Community Engagement (ODICE) was created by the Office of the Dean to further enhance its commitment to recruiting and retaining a diverse student body. The office works closely with the University of Oklahoma, as well as the Health Science Center Office of Diversity & Inclusion to enhance and preserve diversity and inclusion within the HSC campus and to continue to cultivate meaningful relationships with the surrounding community through outreach initiatives. The College of Medicine will now directly manage the diversity initiatives for its students by planning, implementing, and evaluating strategies to further diversity and inclusion. ODICE will routinely engage in ongoing, systematic, and focused recruitment and retention activities to achieve our mission focused outcomes among students. Our team consists of the Assistant Dean for Diversity, Dr. Roberto Salinas, MD, Director of Multicultural Engagement Natasha Mickel, Ph.D. and Recruitment and Admissions Coordinators for Student Diversity, Candice Teets, Jasmine Small, and Laura Cueto.
