Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) are integral to the Core Values of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine (JHUSOM).

Johns Hopkins School of Medicine Core Values

  • Excellence and Discovery
  • Leadership and Integrity 
  • Diversity and Inclusion
  • Respect and Collegiality

Embedded within JHUSOM, the BCMB graduate program prioritizes DEI. We are committed to providing a supportive environment in which the dimensions added by diversity in race, ethnicity, nationality and/or immigration status, culture, socioeconomic status, veteran status, disability status, religion, sex, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, pregnancy status, and marital status are valued and celebrated.

A diverse student body enriches the program for everyone. Promoting, protecting, and valuing diversity, equity and inclusion is therefore an important and expected role for every member (student, faculty and staff) of the BCMB program.  We seek to celebrate the strengths added by different points of view from a diverse community, and we recognize that one of the many benefits of such a community is an enhanced ability to identify creative solutions to scientific problems. The BCMB program provides support at many levels to our students to ensure that they are respected, included, empowered, and engaged.
