At Vanderbilt we welcome employees from a wide variety of backgrounds, traditions and experiences. We often witness the vitality and creativity that comes from bringing different perspectives together. As individuals and professionals, we grow from the ability to recognize commonalities and different histories.

A diverse staff also benefits our students and residents, who come from all over the country and the world. Once employees are here, they discover a wonderful richness in the events and celebrations that are open to all on campus. They will also discover committees and policies that shepherd Vanderbilt into the next decades by demonstrating that excellence is not possible without inclusivity. The links below provide just a sampling of all the ways that Vanderbilt upholds the value of diversity.
