UT Southwestern serves a very diverse population throughout North Texas, and the institution aims to attract a campus community that reflects that diversity. In his President’s Message on Diversity, President Dr. Daniel K. Podolsky said: “I believe that promoting diversity is a moral imperative for our institution. In addition to being the right thing to do, it is a catalyst for innovation in fulfilling our mission, and it is essential for achieving UT Southwestern’s full potential as a leading academic medical center."
